Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month is declared each June by the Alzheimer’s Association to help raise awareness about the disease, as well as show support for the millions of people worldwide living with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. It’s also a time to recognize caregivers for the support they provide to those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Ever three seconds someone in the world develops dementia, with more than 6 million Americans living with the disease.
