In 2018, there are more than 50 million people with dementia worldwide. The stigmatization and misinformation that surrounds dementia is a global problem; however, for so many it is local. Poet’s Walk Cedar Park, and its 16 sister communities, understand the immediate need for care and the importance of awareness and education around this disease. That’s why the community will took part in World Alzheimer’s Day on September 21, 2018. World Alzheimer’s Day is a time to recognize the impact of dementia but also to support those affected. A coordinated global voice on dementia ensures that this action is taken to advance awareness, care and science all year round.
Dementia also has a significant impact on individuals and their care partners who work around the world. The residents, families and team members at Poet’s Walk Cedar Park live with this disease every day. “To watch your family member and loved one develop Alzheimer’s is heartbreaking for everyone. The more people understand the disease, the better care patients can receive and the sooner we’ll be able to, hopefully, develop a cure,” said Gibran Chambers, Executive Director at Poet’s Walk Cedar Park. Diagnosed every three seconds, dementia shares risk factors with diseases such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Poet’s Walk Cedar Park joined with people, organizations and communities in more than 80 countries worldwide to raise awareness, educate people, and promote understanding and support for the millions affected on World Alzheimer’s Day. World Alzheimer’s Day was launched in 1994.
