As we come to an end to Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month — a global initiative to raise awareness, encourage action and create dialogue about the disease — we are so thankful for the action NARFE and its members have taken to show their support. We welcome you to keep the momentum going this summer! There's still time to join the NARFE Walk to End Alzheimer's® team and go purple — the color of Alzheimer's. We are so grateful to have partners who share our vision of a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia.

Plan ahead for dressing or grooming someone living with Alzheimer's
Assisting a person living with Alzheimer's or another dementia in maintaining his or her appearance can promote positive self-esteem. These tasks may become frustrating in the later stages of the disease, but our tips can help. Learn more.

Alzheimer's may have an effect on relationships
As a caregiver for someone living with Alzheimer's, your relationship with your spouse or partner will change as the disease progresses. But you can prepare for this change and find meaningful ways to connect. Learn more.

Take care of emotional needs after an Alzheimer's diagnosis
Coming to terms with an Alzheimer's diagnosis and the emotions you may feel can help you move forward and discover ways to live a positive and fulfilling life. Acknowledging your feelings can be an empowering first step in coping with the challenges ahead. Learn more.

'Good' cholesterol in the brain may protect against Alzheimer's
Elevated levels of high-density lipoproteins (HDL) — often called "good" cholesterol — in the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord may offer protection against Alzheimer's, new research suggests. Study results published in Alzheimer's & Dementia®: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association indicate that small HDL particles could point the way to treatments for the disease before cognitive decline occurs.
