At the same time, this condition is affecting more people than ever – a true epidemic - and the number of those affected, those with the disease and their caregivers, will continue to increase. November is National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. This month and throughout the year, while excited about research developments, we must continue to address the complexity of the condition today and keep the utmost attention on providing support to those with Alzheimer’s Disease and their caregivers.
