For our Facebook Story of the Day you wanted to know about resources for Alzheimer TMs in Southwest Georgia.
Throughout the state there aren't many but we did find the Alzheimer TMs Outreach Center in Albany.
Officials there say more people will likely be diagnosed with Alzheimer TMs as baby boomers get older. However, they say the disease still hasn't gotten national attention. They're hoping that will change with new federal legislation.
We just recently passed a piece of national legislation that is set up to really focus research and some major advocacy efforts on looking at Alzheimer TMs long term, said Virginia Griffin, Director of the Alzheimer TMs Outreach Center.
Locally the Alzheimer TMs Association is participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer TMs on October 15.
