"No time to lose!"

'No time to lose!' is the theme for World Alzheimer's Day - 21 September 2008.

September 21, has been designated at World Alzheimer’s Day, when activities focus on world awareness of Alzheimer’s disease. Ultimately this awareness should result in more research and recognition that with an increasing number of people reaching the “Alzheimer’s age,” we will see more need for care of those stricken and support for their families.

There are an estimated 24 million people around the world who currently have dementia, of which Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause.

Unfortunately there were no events here.
But I’ve tried to make this day brighter to our Alzheimer’s family member, Mother.

  1. Seeker: It must be incredibly hard to have a loved one with such an awful disease. I hope that awareness days like this will result in the funding to make Alzheimer's a thing of the past. Kxo

  14. Hey Seeker just checking in to say hi, and hope you are well. Very interesting about feathers bringing bad luck - I had never heard that superstition before!

  15. I had no idea it was World Alzheimer’s day on Sunday. I think the organising committee will need help to get more publicity next year. I am sure you have ideas to put into place for that Seeker. It is a good motto "no time to lose".

    I am proud to say that I rang home on Sunday and had a good talk to Grandma who told me all about her trip to Maroochydore with "Forever Young" tours. I spoke to Gramps but he is a bit deaf so doesnt talk long but he is doing well. They are both very precious to me.

    I'm sure your Mum was very happy to see you again.
