Together with their loved ones, these individuals experience the tragic realities of a disease that gradually erases cherished memories, affects behavior, and destroys the ability to live independently and carry out the simplest daily tasks.

Guided by the National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease, my Administration is working to enhance care for Alzheimer’s patients, expand support for all people with dementia, and strengthen public-private partnerships to support the Alzheimer’s community. We have funded major new clinical trials, helped train health care providers to diagnosis and manage dementia, and launched a new website that serves as a one-stop resource on Alzheimer’s issues.

During National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, we join with researchers, health care providers, and patient advocates across our country to lift up all those who are battling this disease every day. As we come together to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s, we honor the individuals who lost their lives to it, as well as the devotion and selflessness of the millions of caregivers who endure the financial and emotional strains of this disease.

                Proclamation 9202 of October 31, 2014

                
National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month, 
                2014

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Across our Nation, as many as 5 million Americans live 
                with Alzheimer's disease--currently an irreversible, 
                incurable, and fatal disease. Together with their loved 
                ones, these individuals experience the tragic realities 
                of a disease that gradually erases cherished memories, 
                affects behavior, and destroys the ability to live 
                independently and carry out the simplest daily tasks. 
                This month, we recognize all those whose lives have 
                been touched by Alzheimer's, and we renew our 
                commitment to making progress in the war against it.

                The Federal Government is the world's leading funder of 
                Alzheimer's research, and we are dedicated to finding 
                ways to prevent and effectively treat this devastating 
                disease by 2025. Guided by the National Plan to Address 
                Alzheimer's Disease, my Administration is working to 
                enhance care for Alzheimer's patients, expand support 
                for all people with dementia, and strengthen public-
                private partnerships to support the Alzheimer's 
                community. We have funded major new clinical trials, 
                helped train health care providers to diagnosis and 
                manage dementia, and launched a new website that serves 
                as a one-stop resource on Alzheimer's issues. And this 
                year, as part of our Brain Research through Advancing 
                Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative, we 
                announced new investments to support the research that 
                could unlock the answers to this disease. To learn more 
                about Alzheimer's disease--including risk factors and 
                early signs and symptoms--and to access resources for 
                patients and caregivers, Americans can visit 
                www.Alzheimers.gov.

                During National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month, we 
                join with researchers, health care providers, and 
                patient advocates across our country to lift up all 
                those who are battling this disease every day. As we 
                come together to raise awareness about Alzheimer's, we 
                honor the individuals who lost their lives to it, as 
                well as the devotion and selflessness of the millions 
                of caregivers who endure the financial and emotional 
                strains of this disease. In their spirit, let us 
                continue our work to end this debilitating ailment and 
                its devastating effects.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim November 2014 as 
                National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month. I call 
                upon the people of the United States to learn more 
                about Alzheimer's disease and support the individuals 
                living with this disease and their caregivers.
