It was 10am when CEAFA’s bus labeled with the slogan “La nueva cara del Alzhéimer” (Alzheimer’s new face) parked at Parque de la Alameda on October 4th, after stopping by Salamanca and Valladolid to raise awareness and inform pedestrians about the new reality of Alzheimer’s disease: new profiles of affected people, new profiles of families, future challenges that we must stop together and all the factors involved to create efficient answers.

Juan Carlos Rodríguez, president of the federation, highlighted the need to apply a plan on dementia in our region. The general director of Elderly and Disabled agreed to start up some measures that help people with Alzheimer’s and their families, and also provide Galician Alzheimer organizations that work every day advocating for the rights of affected people with resources. He also advocated for a bigger coordination in the sociosanitary area.

The bus kept raising awareness and informing up to more than 100 people all day long. Memory tests were well received too, with more than 15 people doing them.
