Walgreens and Common Council team up to promote Alzheimer’s awareness

February 12, 2015


Walgreens and the Milwaukee Common Council are teaming up with the Alzheimer’s Association on a new proclamation that will provide greater awareness of Alzheimer’s disease within the community. Walgreens is supporting the effort via information provided at 112 Walgreens drugstores in 11 Southeastern Wisconsin counties. The Alzheimer’s Association wants to empower every dementia caregiver with the tools they need to learn, cope, and survive, all free-of-charge, and how the Milwaukee Common Council is supporting this effort. The mission of this newly launched initiative is to connect family caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia to the education and resources they need to deal with the stress of caregiving so they can remain healthy and productive members of their families, society, and workplace.
