The summer solstice, or what we also refer to as the longest day, will soon be here. Given that June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness month, the longest day is the perfect opportunity to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and care. If you or a loved one is facing Alzheimer’s, then here are a few ways through which you can show your support and raise awareness for the condition on the longest day.
Do You What You Love
What are you passionate about? Do you love books and reading? What about cooking or baking? You can plan an event around the activities you love. For instance, a book fair that focuses on providing resources for memory care in Phoenix can promote awareness and provide families with the help they need to get in-home care and assistance.
Form a Team
You’ll have an easier time if you’ve got a team behind you. Reach out to family and friends. Talk to contacts. Persuade them to participate in one way or another. With a team, you’ll increase your chances of a successful event that raises awareness.
Make a Plan
Plan out the day. Will you have booths that focus on important issues like in-home care? Get in touch with local care agencies and providers who may want to be a part of the event as well. By working together with agencies, you can provide families and patients who live with the condition resources or care avenues they haven’t tried or even thought about before.
Find a Good Agency
If your loved one has Alzheimer’s or if you’ve been diagnosed, then make sure you find a trusted and reputable agency for Alzheimer’s care with experienced in-home caregivers to help you or your family member.
Putting together the event can also help you find the care agency you need if you haven’t got one already. If you do have one, then their involvement and participation in the event can prove useful to other families or guests who’ll be attending.
