Awareness Month, a reminder that the number of people who will

Starting Jan. 1, 79 million baby boomers will turn 65 at a
rate of one every eight seconds.
That is more than four million per year, according to a recent
op-ed piece in The New York Times. If scientists could delay
onset of the disease by five years, via better drugs, the United
States could keep much fewer
patients from needing nursing homes, former Supreme Court Justice
Sandra Day O'Connor, and Alzheimer's experts Stanley Prusiner and
Ken Dychtwald said in the piece.

spends on Alzheimer's research, Americans spend $3.50

I really enjoy working for Synergy. The staff are
professional and caring. They have assigned me to a variety of
cases and have now given me a long term, ongoing case which I
really love. I'm caring for a nice 95 year old lady daily and
after 2 months we've gotten to know each other pretty well. I
have recommended this agency to friends and hope to work for
Synergy for many years to come.
