Statistics show that 68 percent of New Jersey residents know someone impacted by Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. According to alznj.org, “Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe over 100 different conditions that impair memory, behavior, and thinking. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. While people who are aging normally may forget things as well, they will typically remember them later.”
Resources and information about living with Alzheimer’s, legal and financial planning, scientific research, care for the caregiver, and more, can be found at https://www.alznj.org/resources/.
