One thought on “Alzheimer’s Awareness

  1. What do we hope to gain by this? If we had a decent Medicare for all and free thoughtful and caring places to help care for those with Alzheimer’s, if we had a compassionate society and were not a country of greed and callousness, we would manage Alzheimer’s with love and not exhaustion and fear.
