World Alzheimer’s Day, is celebrated in September 21st each year, as established by the World Health Organization.
This year, the Gerontological Complex La Milagrosa wanted to collaborate with the Galician Alzheimer Federation (Federación Alzhéimer Galicia, FAGAL) and its associations to divulge the disease, to disseminate our daily work and to raise the awareness of this condition to the society and the public institutions, given that it can affect around 100,000 people in Galicia.
To commemorate the day, Dr. Pilar Marante organized a route with the footprints that are the base for the campaign of FAGAL, SETTING THE PACE TO THE ALZHEIMER (#MarcandoPasoAlzheimer). Dr. Isabel González-Abraldes was in charge of organizing the users participation, apart from coordinating the collaboration with FAGAL through the social networks (Facebook).
