Chicago hosts the Alzheimer's Memory Walk today, raising money and awareness for the disease. The Alzheimer's Association's Walk to End Alzheimer's began in 1989 and is the nation's largest event to bring attention to Alzheimer's care, support and research initiatives.
The nation's 6th leading cause of death, Alzheimer's disease also can take a financial toll on families. Read about "My Breakfast with President Ronald Reagan" to learn more about the impact of memory loss and the caregiving support that is needed.
Both planning for care services and the ability to pay for care services are important steps when someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Learn about nursing home ratings and costs and the costs of care.
