Assignment: What I Know: Alzheimer's disease
iREPORTERS SIGNED UP
Created March 11, 2011 by
More than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease, and 10.9 million unpaid caregivers are looking after someone with the disease or another form of dementia. Are you someone whose life has been touched by Alzheimer’s? What has it taught you? What do you wish you’d known before, and what would you tell someone with a new diagnosis?
Here's your chance to help someone. Tell us what you’ve learned about life with Alzheimer's. Share your advice on how you cope on video or in writing.
UPDATE: Thank you for sharing your experiences with Alzheimer's. This assignment is now closed. Check out this story on CNN.com featuring iReport contributors.
