UW Health Geriatrics
Walk with our team in this year's Step Forward Give Hope Alzheimer's Walk, to help people facing Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. We are from UW Health Geriatrics. We work with patients and famlies every day who are trying to keep the hope for a cure, but in the meantime, need the help and support that the Alzheimer's and Dementia Alliance provides to Dane and surrounding counties.
Although Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging, the risk of developing the disease increases with age. Current research from the National Institute on Aging indicates that the prevalence of Alzheimer's disease doubles every five years beyond age 65, with one in two people over 85 affected.
The Alzheimer's & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin helps people in Wisconsin as they face every stage of this disease, a commitment they have maintained for more than 30 years. Help our team reach our goal by making a gift today.
