HopeHealth’s Walk for Alzheimer’s Takes Place on May 15

Walking01BOURNE – HopeHealth’s Walk for Alzheimer’s provides funding for information, education and support services for people with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia—and families and professionals who care for them.

Caring for someone who has Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia can be a difficult physical, emotional and mental challenge.

Caregiving can go on for years and requires special understanding, patience and skills.

Specialized programs provided by Hope Dementia & Alzheimer’s Services include assessment, individual and group counseling, education, telephone support and respite care.

HopeHealth’s Walk for Alzheimer’s takes place on May 15 at the Cape Cod Canal at Scusset State Beach.

Participants can make a difference in the lives of those battling the disease.

When they walk, they help thousands across eastern Massachusetts receive essential care and support services.

Walking for Alzheimer’s will help provide services for thousands of local families who are living with Alzheimer’s disease.

According to the Massachusetts Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders State Plan, every sixty-nine seconds another American develops Alzheimer’s disease.

It is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States and the fifth leading cause of death for those 65 and older.

One in nine people age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s disease.
