"Diagnosing Dementia: See It Sooner"

Because I feel deep in me the problem, with a family member with Alzheimer's, Mother, as most of you know, my featured cause is Support Alzheimer's Research with things that can promote awareness of Alzheimer’s disease.

Awareness should result in more research and recognition. Stronger Alzheimer associations are better able to meet the needs of people with dementia and their carers.

September 21, has been designated at World Alzheimer’s Day, when activities focus on world awareness of Alzheimer’s disease.

Every year on 21 September Alzheimer associations across the globe unite to recognise World Alzheimer's Day in many ways and 2009 is no exception with memory walks, open days, lectures, training courses, entertainment and conferences taking place internationally.

The theme for World Alzheimer's Day™ 2009 is "Diagnosing Dementia: See It Sooner".

  4. POW TO AWRENESS! good that u are bringin this up!Thnx for sharing!

    One Love,

  5. Conheco a doença de perto, uma vez que já trabalhei, enquanto Educadora Social, com pessoas que padeciam desta doença. Esperemos que mais avanços científicos aconteçam com brevidade. Porque é uma doença pela qual nenhum indivíduo e nenhuma família deveriam ter de passar. Um beijinho!

  6. Wow. thanks for that information. Now I know.

  7. Sempre que se levantam causas assim é muito importante!
    Que seja bem proveitoso!

  8. Hi there-what a thoughtful post and thanks so much for sharing and making us all aware too, take care my dear.

  9. i hope they find a cure for alzheimer's and dementia soon. my grandpa suffered from both for years before he died, and it was so very difficult to watch.

  10. this is a very important cause-my thoughts are with you...

  11. Hi Seeker,

    thank you for educating me on this important cause. I have a family member who is my actual Godfather, my uncle.. is afflicted with the disease, he no longer knows who anyone is...

    Thank you for the educated, and nice comment, on the problem in America, and what policy does to Mexiccan Americans....

    laughs, and positive energy.....


  12. HEy Seeker,
    Thank you for this great informative post. Alzheimers is such a horrible disease, and sometimes I think it's worse for the ones that love the afflicted. Someday, with a lot of hard work and support we will find a cure.
    take care my dear friend,
    Julian :)

  13. Thank you for highlighting one of the many crucial issues that I think we should all be conscious about and empathise with.

    Good on you, hun, contributions like this are priceless.

    Have a lovely week too :)

  14. its great that you are giving this the awareness it most definately deserves!

  15. A serious issue. Thanks for highlighting it.

  16. It's a truly worthy cause. Thanks for the info, I didn't know Sept. 21 was World Alzheimer's Day.

  17. Knowledge is power!
    Great that you post this darling...
    so sorry haven't been visiting your lovely blog lately...still enjoying my Singapore trip, shall fly back home this Thursday! Much LUV to you as always! xo*

  18. I hope with all my heart they come up with a cure. My grandmother had it and I worry that her having it might put me at risk. Scary.
