The Purple Angel Project Goes To NAPA April 29th 2pm EST

My experiences over the past few years have proven to me the most valuable effort with regard to dementia is sharing our journey and allowing others to share theirs. We have no cure. We can help each other when we share and do all we can to secure funding for more research to find the cause and a cure for these dreaded diseases that rob us of our loved ones while they are still alive.

mICHAEL_ELLENBOGEN_SPEAKINGMichael Ellenbogen will be presenting to NAPA Committee (National Alzheimer’s Project Act) asking them to get behind and support the Purple Angel symbol which is the new global symbol for dementia.  No longer is it acceptable for countries, organizations or individuals to be divided on this issue.  The disease touches far too many people, both those diagnosed as well as their family, friends, co-workers and communities.

Please send emails to support the Purple Angel Project to

napa@hhs.gov

after 2 PM eastern time on the 29th of April.

  1. Hi there,

    I am a caregiver and just came across your blog.

    I have been a young(ish!) carer for my mother-in-law, who suffers from dementia, for the last three years now.

    I am in the process of creating a new poetry site primarily aimed at carers, but also people with dementia as well – http://dementiapoetry.com.

    The blog is an honest account of my experience of caring over the last few years in poems – some silly, some exasperated, some happy, some sad – of my last three years caring for my mother-in-law, who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, and is aimed at helping to support other caregivers in a similar position.

    If you would be happy to link to me, I would gladly return the favour!

    DG x
