Team members from Raritan Bay – Perth Amboy

Raritan Bay Medical Center-Old Bridge and Raritan Bay-Perth Amboy team members wore purple on June 9 in recognition of Alzheimer’s Disease and BrainAwareness Month. Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging. The greatest known risk factor is increasing age, and the majority of people with Alzheimer’s are 65 and older. But Alzheimer’s is not just a disease of old age. Approximately 200,000 Americans under the age of 65 have younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease (also known as early-onset Alzheimer’s).  The most common early symptom of Alzheimer’s is difficulty remembering newly learned information.
