September is World Alzheimer’s Month, an international campaign to raise dementia awareness and challenge stigma, and the purple ribbon is the chosen color to represent awareness for Alzheimer’s disease.
According to WHO, over 50 million people worldwide have dementia. As the most common form of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease contributes to 60-70% cases of dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by an irreversible
decline in cognitive and behavioral abilities that will eventually render the person completely reliant on others for basic activities in daily life.
