The impact of Alzheimer’s is profoundly felt throughout the state. Currently in Montana, 20,000 people are living with Alzheimer’s with an estimated 5.7 million across the country. The Alzheimer’s Association® urges individuals throughout Montana to get involved and raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia is life changing and raises a lot of questions and emotions. It can leave a person feeling isolated and unsure of where to turn for information and support to live well with dementia.
