NARFE February
We're grateful for all NARFE Walk to End Alzheimer's® Team members who plan to walk and raise funds again this year. Your dedication helps the Alzheimer's Association® advance vital research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure. We couldn't do this important work without you — thank you!

Exciting news — we're moving forward with plans to host Walk in person this fall!* From the opening ceremony to the finish line, we hope to see you in purple and feel the energy you bring to Walk. Register for the NARFE team today and join the fight to end Alzheimer's.

*The health and safety of participants, volunteers and staff remain our top priorities as we continue to monitor the pandemic and make decisions about event details in your community. While we're planning to gather in person, we will continue to offer options to participate in Walk online and in your neighborhood.

People living with dementia may have higher COVID-19 risk
In study results published in Alzheimer's & Dementia®: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association, researchers found that the risk of contracting COVID-19 was twice as high for participants living with dementia than for those without it. In addition, when examining those in the study living with dementia, Black participants had close to three times the COVID-19 risk as Whites. Learn more.

Alzheimer's affects people living with the disease in different ways
Alzheimer's typically progresses slowly in three general stages: mild (early stage), moderate (middle stage) and severe (late stage). Each person living with Alzheimer's will experience symptoms and progress through the stages of the disease in different ways. Learn more.

Approaching memory loss in yourself or others is important
It can be difficult to know what to do if you've noticed changes in memory, thinking or behavior in yourself, a family member or friend. You may feel uncertain about voicing your worries, but these are significant health concerns, and it's important to take action. Learn more.

Adult day centers can benefit people living with Alzheimer's and caregivers
Adult day centers offer people living with Alzheimer's or another dementia the opportunity to be social and participate in activities in a safe environment. Caregivers can also benefit from a much-needed break. Learn more.
