DECATUR, GA, September 13, 2022: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “Raising Awareness For World Alzheimer’s Awareness Month And Day,” Ms. Pawley reminds readers that, “Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging.”
Pawley points out that, “Each year, the month of September is dedicated to World Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, with special observances and events scheduled for World Alzheimer’s Awareness Day on September 21st.” She continues adding, “Unless someone in your family or a loved one has experienced living and caring for someone with an Alzheimer’s diagnosis, chances are you are not aware of the devastation this illness brings. The devastation is widespread and affects not only the one with the diagnosis but every member of the family as well as friends and relatives.”
“As the most common form of dementia,” Pawley writes, “Alzheimer’s now affects roughly 6 percent of people 65 and older. In the U.S. there are more than 6 million people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. By the year 2050 the number of people projected to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s is 13 million.” Pawley states, “Most people think it is simply part of aging. However, it is not, and it doesn’t just affect the elderly. In fact, there are more than 200,000 people under the age of 60 diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s.”
