World Alzheimer's Day

Every disease and illness is terrible in its own way but Alzheimer's is one of the most insidious in my opinion. I've seen the patient live a happy, if lonely, life while family caregivers literally work themselves to death trying to care for their loved one.

Today is World Alzheimer's Day and in case you've forgotten the disease affects 5.3 million people here in the United States. One of the many organizations to learn more is the Alzheimer's Solutions Project.
