Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month 2021

June 16, 2021

BrightStar Care of Austin observes Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month as an opportunity to spread the word about and discuss Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. 

Throughout June, the Alzheimer's Association encourages people around the globe, including Texas, to support the movement by wearing purple and training their brains to fight the disease.

How to Observe Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month

  1. Donate time or money to an Alzheimer's organization.
  2. Volunteer at charitable organizations that need dedicated Alzheimer's volunteers, and encourage others to participate as well.
  3. Get educated - read, search the web, or watch videos online. Start by visiting our Alzheimer's resources HERE. 
  4. Communities around the world hold public events and seminars to spread awareness about Alzheimer's. Take part in them and find out more about the disease and how you can contribute to the fight. Join a group or attend an event for Alzheimer's.
