18. Talking (and Walking) to End Alzheimer’s
In the United States, approximately 11 MILLION WOMEN are either living with Alzheimer’s or caring for someone who has it.
Almost TWO-THIRDS of Americans living with Alzheimer’s are women.
More than THREE IN FIVE unpaid Alzheimer's caregivers are women.
To learn more about this devastating disease that so disproportionately impacts women, Fran talks with Kristen Cusato, Director of Communications at the Connecticut Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, and Molly Devanney, Co-Owner and Vice President of Public Relations for Highland Park Market, who balances her professional responsibilities with serving as the primary caregiver for her aunt who has Alzheimer’s.
During this honest and open conversation, you’ll gain an understanding of the disease and learn about resources available for caregivers. You’ll also learn how you can help, including how to participate in one of the Walks to End Alzheimer’s taking place in Connecticut through the end of October.
To learn more about the resources available through the Alzheimer’s Association, or to get involved with one of the walks happening in Connecticut in October, visit www.alz.org/ct.
