Local Alzheimer’s Association chapter strives to raise awareness of disease and brain health in the community

June marks Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month, and the Alzheimer’s Association is urging everyone to prioritize their brain health. With over 6.7 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease, which is the most common type of dementia, it is crucial to raise awareness about the disease and ways for people to get involved.

Dawne Bunn, the director for the Tennessee Alzheimer’s Association, is actively raising awareness about the disease and providing free resources to the community. She emphasizes the organization’s commitment to supporting families on their journey with Alzheimer’s. Some early signs of Alzheimer’s and dementia include memory loss, challenges in problem-solving, confusion with time or place, and withdrawal from social activities.

June 20th is dedicated to bringing awareness to Alzheimer’s disease through events like The Longest Day in Chattanooga. Partners like Charter Living are participating in these events to raise funds for research. These efforts are essential in advancing research and finding a cure for the disease.

The Alzheimer’s Association is excited about breakthroughs in treatment and upcoming announcements at The Alzheimer’s Association International Conference. To learn more about the organization and access resources, visit their website or call their 24/7 Helpline at 800-272-3900.
