We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month

Jun 1, 2018

Looking for an Alzheimer’s and brain health expert?

The number of Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease is quickly growing. Approximately 5.7 million Americans of all ages are currently living with Alzheimer’s including those under the age of 65. Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S., killing more people than breast and prostate cancers combined.

Although there is no cure for the disease, early diagnosis and treatment can help individuals and their caregivers to prepare legal, financial and end-of-life arrangements while the patient is still cognitively able to make decisions. Preparations also help lift the burden for caregivers, for whom 85 percent are mostly unpaid family members and friends. Early diagnosis could also collectively save $7 trillion in health and long-term health care costs (Source: Alzheimer’s Association).

Northeast Baptist Hospital works with neurological specialists to diagnose and treat patients with Alzheimer’s disease, and help families understand what Alzheimer’s disease is and how to help their loved ones.
