November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month, and it's shocking to hear that there are approximately 100,000 Minnesotans living with some form of Alzheimer's or Dementia.  If you think about those large numbers of people affected, you also have to think about the number of caregivers that are also being affected by those numbers, which if there was just one caregiver per person suffering from ALZ, that would be 200,000 people being affected by it.
