Support Groups Are Available for Patients and Families Affected by Alzheimer's Disease

Six22, an up and coming Marketing Solutions Firm based in Queens New York, supports Alzheimer's Disease Awareness by spreading knowledge of support programs for patients, caregivers, and families.

New York, NY, November 07, 2013 --( Every year, more and more patients are diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. The disease not only affects the person diagnosed, but has a powerful impact on their family and loved ones. Six22, an up and coming marketing firm located in Flushing NY, show support for Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month during November by sharing resources available to support patients and families with easing into and coping with the changes this disease will bring.

Alzheimer's is a form of dementia that affects those usually over the age of 65. It targets memory cells and affects a persons ability to carry out daily tasks, as well as affecting the proper function of the body. The death rate from Alzheimer's disease, which is the sixth leading cause of death in the US, has increased by sixty-eight percent since 2000, a harsh difference from the other five causes of death that have decreased the number of resulted deaths.

Caring for a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease is not always easy, described by some as an “emotional rollercoaster”. Fortunately for those in need there are support groups that assemble all over the country. These groups often consist of caregivers, spouses, patients, and adult children of patients, among others. These groups provide the necessary community of those affected to share experiences and guide each other through the hurdles involved in care. The Alzheimer's Association's website,, features a number of resources, including a Support Group search engine to locate and engage with groups, some even offering 24/7 hotlines to support caregivers and patients.

“Alzheimer's Disease is a serious ailment that affects many people. A number of people are affected by the disease in one way or another, and it is imperative that everyone know what resources are out there to help. No one should have to handle an awful disease like this alone, and its important to know that no one has to,” said Jason Newman, CEO of Six22.
