Your memory often changes as you grow older. But memory loss that disrupts daily life is not a typical part of aging.
Learn the Signs
Coming to terms with the diagnosis requires time. Immediate reactions of denial and fear are normal and may help you and the person diagnosed process the grief you are feeling.
During this time when we are all being asked to stay at home, it is important to keep the mind challenged and to maintain social interaction. We have provided some suggestions for activities (both real and virtual) that you can do yourself or with a loved one.
The Longest Day is built for virtual fundraising. Join us virtually in support of our mission, now more than ever.
