“Memory Sunday” Event to Raise Dementia Awareness Among Faith Communities

The City of Boston, the Executive Office of Elder Affairs, Alzheimer’s Association of MA/NH and other organizations are sponsoring the first “Memory Sunday” event in the Northeast on Sunday, June 10th.

The idea behind Memory Sunday is that every church, on the 2nd Sunday in June each year will openly address the problem of Alzheimer’s disease to increase awareness and promote existing resources.  The City of Boston and other event organizers are inviting people and  representatives of faith communities to attend this year and next year do it in their own places of worship.
