Join Bharosa Community Services in Raising Awareness and Support on Alzheimer’s and Brain Health

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, a time dedicated to increasing awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, advocating for better care, and supporting those affected by these conditions.

Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects memory, thinking, and behaviour. It is the most common cause of dementia among older adults. Recognizing the early signs and symptoms is crucial for timely intervention and care. These may include:

  • Memory loss that disrupts daily life
  • Challenges in planning or solving problems
  • Difficulty completing familiar tasks
  • Confusion with time or place
  • Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships
  • New problems with words in speaking or writing
  • Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps
  • Decreased or poor judgement
  • Withdrawal from work or social activities
  • Changes in mood and personality
