Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month

As we enter the month of June, a special period of reflection and education takes center stage. Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month marks an important time for individuals, families, and communities to come together to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. This annual campaign serves as a reminder to acknowledge the millions of lives affected by these conditions while also emphasizing the crucial role that awareness plays in our collective fight against them.

1. Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia: Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia have a profound impact on individuals and their loved ones. It is imperative to educate ourselves about these conditions, their symptoms, and available resources. By fostering understanding, we can promote empathy and create a supportive environment for those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

2. Spreading Awareness: During this month, let us take the initiative to spread awareness within our social circles, workplaces, and communities. Encourage open discussions, organize educational events, and share information through various channels. Together, we can dispel misconceptions and promote accurate knowledge about Alzheimer’s and dementia.

3. Advocacy and Support: Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month offers an opportune time to engage in advocacy efforts. Reach out to local policymakers, support organizations, and research institutions to understand how you can contribute. Advocate for increased funding for research, access to quality care, and enhanced support systems for individuals and families affected by these conditions.

4. Brain-Healthy Lifestyle: Promote the importance of a brain-healthy lifestyle, which can help reduce the risk of cognitive decline. Encourage regular physical exercise, a balanced diet, mental stimulation, social engagement, and quality sleep. Small lifestyle changes can have a significant impact on brain health and overall well-being.

Let us seize this month to empower ourselves and others with knowledge, compassion, and a shared determination to create a world where Alzheimer’s and dementia are a thing of the past. Together, we can pave the way for a brighter and healthier future for all.

"OMG!! This nursing home is amazing especially this one worker. Her name is Michelle. When I tell you she's so great at what she does, I mean she's great. I visit my aunt quite frequently who resides on the 7th floor. Prior to her being assigned on that floor; there were a lot of unsanitary conditions especially the stench and filth. All of a sudden I notice this girl (Michelle) has been working on the floor and all of those unsanitary conditions including the stench left. I never seen a person that take so much pride and dignity in cleaning all of those rooms and the whole floor from top to bottom. This floor is like a brand new floor that I never seen. I'm going to pay her a visit the next time I see my aunt and make her an offer at my firm as a executive assistant!"

"This is a great place for rehabilitation... my father was at split rock on Baychester ave. In bronx and would go back and forth to hospital every 3 or 4 days because of carelessness with the staff... we said enough was enough when my father flatlined .WAYNE REHABILITATION has saved my fathers life. They are very good at diagnosing, rehabilitation and nutrition. Everyone there looks like they love their job. Never a problem with anyone any my father loves it there. He has recovered nicely and will be coming home soon. I highly recommend WAYNE REHABILITATION AND NURSING to everyone."

"I had a knee replacement and went to Wayne Center through a referral from a friend. I immediately noticed the ambiance of a modern facility to be very appealing clean well lit and organized. An administrative staff visited my room and explained their role and expectations. Nurses were very attentive and especially to the elderly and always smiling. Except for breakfast the food was very good quality and taste. Rehab staff was great I enjoyed working with Rosalyn she really made me work. Only drawback in rehab was they need another machine for legs. Staff was A+ from nurses, administration and maintenance-"noticed when their was a spill on the floor they would quickly clean up".
I would definitely refer anyone who is thinking of sending their parent, grandparent or loved one."
