A Community Involved

EVERYONE CAN HELP MAKE ALZHEIMER'S A THING OF THE PAST

Citizen Engagement

Go Purple! Do something, host something, wear something. Your town can take action today to raise awareness and support those in your community living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

  • Go purple during Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month in June. Do something to raise awareness with the movement’s signature color and paint the town purple.
  • Help persons living with Alzheimer’s and their families know about the resources available at no cost for them from the Alzheimer’s Association. Host an Alzheimer’s Association outreach table.
  • Join us on Wednesday, June 21st – the longest day of the year and a special day of action for the Alzheimer’s community. Create a team for The Longest Day®, a fundraising event to honor those facing the disease and their caregivers. Or, encourage your members to wear purple to recognize this important day. Learn more and sign up at alz.org/thelongestday.
  • Start a Walk to End Alzheimer’s team to engage your community at alzwalkmanh.org
  • Early detection matters, learn the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease and how to recognize them in yourself and others. Host an education program in your community.
  • Promote Alzheimer’s Awareness to your local neighborhood businesses and help make your businesses dementia friendly. Host a talk about “Dementia and your community”
