June focuses on Alzheimer's awareness


INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - June is Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month and 5.8 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's.

Out of those, 110,000 are Hoosiers, and every 65 seconds someone in the U.S. develops the disease.

Lauren Lay stopped by WTHR Weekend Sunrise to explain how the Alzheimer's Association Greater Indiana Chapter helps.

She also discussed the 10 warnings signs of Alzheimer's. The Alzheimer's Association has a 24/7 helpline. That number is 800-272-3900.
