You’re invited to join Tabitha for a sneak peek and interactive discussion of the intriguing documentary Alzheimer’s:  Every Minute Counts on Feb. 28 at NET Nebraska (1800 N. 33rd St., Lincoln.) This event is free and open to the public.

The program will begin with a fair and reception at 4 p.m., equipping you with a variety of educational resources to help you learn more about this disease and how it impacts the aging journey. Then watch the exclusive, 60 minute, film which includes stories from caregivers whose loved ones and families have been affected by Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Stay after the screening for an interactive discussion with some of Lincoln’s top dementia professionals and get your questions answered from experts in the field.  

This special program serves as an urgent wake-up call to put more resources and awareness towards one of the most critical health crises facing our nation today. An alarming five million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s. It is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. and kills more people than breast and prostate cancer combined. One in every three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. The costs associated with this disease are astronomical. In 2016, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia cost the U.S. $236 billion. By 2050, these costs could rise to more than one trillion dollars.

Seniors with Alzheimer's disease or other types of dementia have a wide range of abilities, and their needs change as their condition progresses.  Tabitha addresses these diverse needs with a broad range of memory care services within the Tabitha Elder Care Continuum. These services range from proactive aging planning to personalized in-home support to assisted living communities specifically designed for memory care clients. Tabitha also regularly provides educational forums with Q&A sessions open to the public about various topics related to memory care.
