November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, and to help create awareness in a personal way, A Place for Mom is asking why you want to end Alzheimer’s. To show your support, use the hashtag #EndAlz.

Alzheimer’s has impacted many lives as the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S., and sharing why you want to stop the disease could help bring the awareness we need to find a cure.

Why Do You Want to End Alzheimer’s?

Many of our loved ones at A Place for Mom have been touched by Alzheimer’s, and we understand the pain it causes families.
