Brookdale is the leading provider of Alzheimer's and dementia care in the United States. They have been committed to providing senior living solutions in properties that have been designed, purpose-built and operated with one thing in mind - to provide the best possible care and living accommodations for the residents. The company also has a long-standing commitment to support the research of the disease.

At the time of writing this more than 35 million people are suffering from Alzheimer's around the world, in the U.S. the rate is even higher than world average, as there's over 5 million people suffering from it and it's the 6th leading cause of death in the country.

November is the National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month and Brookdale together with Alzheimer's Association is doing it's best to raise funds to advance research and enhance care and support for the people affected by the disease. And it's more important than ever, considering the number of people living with Alzheimer's is expected to double every 20 years, unless a way to prevent it is found.

Alzheimer's Disease is the most common form of dementia, a brain disease that can range in severity. From just affecting the patient's functioning to making the person completely dependent on others.
