Eight counties in my home state of New Jersey honored caregivers and raised dementia awareness on November 3rd, the designated day for dementia awareness in NJ. The whole month of November is set aside by the Alzheimer's Association for many events that bring attention to the disease of dementia.
The group at Llanfair House in Wayne, NJ was selected as the Passaic County site and had caregiver speakers, a candlelighting ceremony with a music therapist and finished with refreshments. Here are some of the participants outside with their candles.
Please share your plans for raising awareness during Alzheimer's Awareness month--we need ideas and pictures, please!
