Monday, April 7, 2014

Alzheimer’s disease is on the rise. The death rate from Alzheimer’s disease in Tennessee has risen 138 percent since the year 2000; the fifth highest Alzheimer’s death rate in the nation.

“Despite the prevalence of this devastating disease, there are often far more questions about it than answers, especially for those caring for loved ones who are affected,” stated Amy French, manager of programs for the local Alzheimer’s Association. “The Alzheimer’s Association is here to help. That’s why we offer programs to specifically meet the needs of caregivers in the community,” Ms. French explained.
