NARFE December
This holiday season, and every season, we are grateful for NARFE's dedication and support in the fight against Alzheimer's. In a year full of challenges, your commitment did not waver — thank you! So far this year, passionate NARFE Walk to End Alzheimer's® teams have raised an incredible $62,333 to help advance Alzheimer's care, support and research. These dollars are essential to improving the lives of people living with Alzheimer's, their families and caregivers by helping fund resources like our free 24/7 Helpline. Services like these are needed now more than ever, as holidays can often be challenging times for those living with Alzheimer's and their loved ones. Thanks to you, we're there to help.

There's still time to get your last minute donations in! Spread the word that Walk to End Alzheimer's funds are collected until Dec. 31 and will count toward the overall goal of $14 million.

Thank you again for your partnership in this fight. We are grateful for you and wish you a joyful and healthy holiday season.

A daily plan can help caregivers and people living with Alzheimer's
Daily routines can be helpful for both caregivers and people living with Alzheimer's. A planned day allows you to spend less time trying to figure out what to do and more time on activities that provide meaning and enjoyment. Learn more.

Anxiety may result in quicker progression to Alzheimer's
Older adults with memory problems may progress to Alzheimer's more quickly if they also have anxiety symptoms, a new study suggests. Researchers found that participants with more anxiety symptoms at the study's outset were more likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's over the next several years compared to those with few symptoms. Simplifying daily routines, making the home environment calm and fitting in activities such as walks, gardening or listening to music can help manage anxiety and stress. Learn more.

It's important to acknowledge feelings after an Alzheimer's diagnosis
Receiving a diagnosis of Alzheimer's is difficult and life-changing. It's normal to experience a range of emotions, but coming to terms with your diagnosis can help you accept it, move forward and discover ways to live a positive and fulfilling life. Learn more.

People living with Alzheimer's can take action to help others
People living with Alzheimer's have a unique opportunity to turn their experience into inspiration for others. Their voice and actions are powerful tools that can help to raise concern and awareness and empower others. Learn more.
