NARFE January
As we kick off 2021, we want to celebrate you — our passionate NARFE Walk to End Alzheimer's® National Team members. The numbers are in, and you've raised an amazing $62,828 to help provide Alzheimer's care and support and advance research! This counts toward NARFE's overall goal of $14 million by December 31, 2022. We're so grateful for your partnership in the fight to end Alzheimer's and look forward to what we can accomplish together in the coming year.

We'd also like to honor a special NARFE member in Montana whose commitment to the Alzheimer's Association and Walk to End Alzheimer's inspires us all. Learn more about Leland "Wally" Walbruch and his dedication to ending Alzheimer's.

Focus on emotions when responding to repetitive behavior
A person living with Alzheimer's may repeat a word, question or activity or undo something that has just been finished. In most cases, they're probably looking for comfort, security and familiarity. When responding, think about how the person is feeling rather than react to the behavior. Learn more.

Confusion is common in people in the later stages of Alzheimer's
A person living in the later stages of Alzheimer's may not remember familiar people, places or things. Situations involving memory loss and confusion are extremely difficult for caregivers and families, and require patience and understanding. Learn more.

People living with Alzheimer's can take action to help others
People living with Alzheimer's have a unique opportunity to turn their experience into inspiration for others. Their voice and actions are powerful tools that can help to raise concern and awareness and empower others. Learn more.

COVID-19 may impact Alzheimer's risk
In an article in Alzheimer's & Dementia®: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association, researchers say that COVID-19 may have long-term effects on the brains and nervous symptoms of survivors and could increase risk of developing Alzheimer's. A new, large international study will investigate the correlation between COVID-19 and cognitive decline; it will be funded initially by the Alzheimer's Association, which will also help coordinate it internationally, with guidance from the World Health Organization.
