NARFE September
There's still time to register for the national NARFE Walk to End Alzheimer's® team! This has been a year of change for all of us, but one thing that hasn't changed is our commitment to the fight against Alzheimer's and all other dementia. We're still working tirelessly every day and raising money for research, care and support. But your health and safety are always our first priority — that's why this year we won't be having large gatherings. Instead, we're inviting you to walk on your own, with people you know, always with appropriate social distancing. You can also participate online if that's what feels best and safest for you this year. Join the NARFE team today!

Sleep patterns may be related to Alzheimer's
A variety of unusual or disrupted sleep patterns, including being an early riser and sleeping for short durations, may be more common in people with a high genetic risk for Alzheimer's, a new study suggests. Researchers found no evidence that sleep-related characteristics cause Alzheimer's, but the results showed some small associations between sleep habits and the disease. Learn more.

Alzheimer's Association selected as Public Health Center of Excellence
The Alzheimer's Association has been selected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as the BOLD Public Health Center of Excellence on Dementia Risk Reduction. Through funding awarded by the CDC, the Association will lead a national effort to develop and disseminate public health strategies and resources aimed at reducing the risk of cognitive decline and dementia.

Hospice care may benefit families facing Alzheimer's
Hospice care focuses on comfort and dignity at the end of life. Rather than providing treatment, the primary purpose of hospice care is to manage pain and other symptoms. It can be of great benefit to people in the final stages of Alzheimer's and their families. Learn more.

Certain healthy habits may reduce dementia risk
As scientists continue to explore methods to prevent Alzheimer's and other dementia, research shows some healthy habits in adolescence may reduce the risk of dementia. Risk factors such as age and genetics can't be changed, but evidence suggests there may be other factors we can influence. Learn more.
