The diagnosis can be devastating. Patients worry they will forget the simple things that used to bring them joy like friends and family, hobbies and memories.

There are currently 5.5 million Americans living with the disease.

Research shows that friendships and a strong social circle have a dramatic impact on quality of life for those living with Alzheimer’s. Socialization has been shown to help slow down memory loss and can be important to fighting Alzheimer’s.

Juliet is the Senior Director of Dementia Care for Brookdale Senior Living and specializes in person-centered programs for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Brookdale is the nation’s largest senior living provider.

Juliet will also invite readers to download a journal in which those with Alzheimer’s Disease can share with their families things that they need to know once they can no longer communicate to them.
