A small group of Alzheimer’s and Dementia sufferers, along with their caregivers and loved ones, united behind Rick Phelps in a “social group” on Facebook a few short months ago. Suddenly their numbers have swelled to more than 1600 members with no end in sight.
If you’re a caregiver or have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or Dementia and would like to join this group, simply visit the companion page Memory People Fan Page at Facebook and they will help you to find the Memory People Group.
Rick Phelps was diagnosed with EOAD (Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease) at a young age and has become an advocate and “man on a mission” to raise awareness to Alzheimer’s.
For the anniversary of their second month and with only 200 members, their excitement was infectious. At that time Rick said: “We at Memory People™ have a huge announcement to make–we are nearing the acceptance of our 200th Member to Memory People™. Our goal to raise awareness to Alzheimer’s has been a huge success so far.
We have only been in existence for two short months and have already grown to these numbers with members from all over the world. Members have joined our group from Canada, Nova Scotia, England, Australia, the UK, and all over America. We couldn’t be happier by what we have accomplished in these two short months.
Together, we are each going to release three balloons with purple ribbons on the same day, all over the world, to bring Awareness to Alzheimer’s. We are just beginning. We are changing the way people look at this disease by bringing Awareness to it.
If you know someone fighting this disease– family member, or caregiver, and they would like to join us at Memory People™ they need only send a friend request to me, Rick Phelps, I will see that they are accepted.” –Rick Phelps
And their mission of raising awareness continues! The membership is growing rapidly. Though Memory People™ is a closed Group on Face-book, the only Face-book group of its kinds which offers support for Alzheimer’s. Please help us bring Awareness to this terrible disease…
Rick is not a physician nor advocate for any particular treatment for others. He is a person with Early On-Set Alzheimer’s who is documenting his own progress in the hopes of enlightening others about this disease and it’s symptoms.
