Alzheimer’s Awareness Month


July 11, 2022
Last month we celebrated Alzheimer’s Awareness Month at Mentor Ridge. This is a month of awareness instated by late president Ronald Reagan who passed away in 2004 due to his own battle with the disease. Alzheimer’s is one of the leading causes of death in the United States and can be as much of a battle for the individual diagnosed as it can be for their family and loved ones. The biggest struggles family members face when caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s is the frustration and grieving that comes with the loss of the person they used to know.

Learn more about Alzheimer's so that you, too, can spread awareness.


Early Signs of Alzheimer’s:

  • Memory Loss
  • Disorientation
  • Problems with Abstract Thinking
  • Changes in Mood and Behavior
  • Loss of Initiative
  • Problems Performing Familiar Tasks
  • Problems with Judgment
  • Change in Personality


When is Additional Care Necessary?

“When someone develops memory loss, they should see their doctor to find out what is causing it. It is possible to make a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease with a high degree of certainty. If initial screening tests are positive, additional evaluation is warranted.”

- Dr. Suchan who has been working with patients with Alzheimer’s for the past 32 years.
