In Pennsylvania alone, there are more than 280,000 people living with Alzheimer’s disease and more than 500,000 family members and friends providing 622,000,000 hours of unpaid care.

June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month and during the month all communities have a chance to lift up conversations about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia. The Alzheimer’s Association Greater PA Chapter is encouraging all Pennsylvania residents to make brain health an important part of their lives as we continue to overcome the challenges we have faced together over the past year.

Now is the time to join the Alzheimer’s Association to raise awareness and take action against this devastating disease. On June 20 — the summer solstice and longest day of the year — people across the world will participate in an activity of their choice for The Longest Day.

You can turn your passion into a purpose as you participate in any activity of your choosing as you honor a loved one or caregiver on June 20. Getting started is easy and the Alzheimer’s Association is there with you every step of the way as we shine a light on Alzheimer’s disease.

Visit alz.org/thelongestday to sign up and join us in the fight!
