On Sunday, June 11, My church home, The Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York hosted its 2nd Annual Brain & Alzheimer’s Awareness Sunday. As an advocate for Alzheimer’s Awareness, I’m grateful for a church that helps raise awareness to a disease that is so rarely talked about.
Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. When I was a caregiver for my mom, information wasn’t easily accessible. Through dedicated research, and a commitment to find the best support for my mother, I was a ale to find the resources necessary to care for her at the best of my ability. However, it was a process, and I am determined to help shed light on how caregivers can effectively care for their loved ones.
