Alzheimer’s and Caregivers: Blog Tour


President Ronald Reagan designated November as National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month in 1983. At the time, fewer than 2 million Americans had Alzheimer’s; today, the number of people with the disease has soared to nearly 5.4 million (Alzheimer’s Association, 2014).  The author community of Helping Hands Press is getting involved this month, and hopes to help raise awareness for Alzheimer’s disease.

Starting November third (that’s today!)  with Anne Baxter Campbell’s blog post and Sue Badeau’s appearance on blogtalk radio, and finishing on November twenty-fifth with Mark Venturini’s blog post, many of the authors in the Helping Hands Press Community will be sharing their personal stories.
