AFA-CWA Strong In the Fight Against Alzheimer's

AFA-CWA Strong In the Fight Against Alzheimer's

May 24, 2018 — AFA-CWA is Raising Awareness and Showing Support for all those affected by Alzheimer's and Dementia.

"Fighting Alzheimer's is a personal cause for the members of AFA. Flight Attendants are natural caregivers, and many have directly faced the effects of Alzheimer’s with their loved ones. On the plane, we encounter situations or passenger conflicts that may occur when people are exhibiting behaviors caused by Alzheimer's or dementia. The resources provided by the Alzheimer's Association can help us do our job, assist us in our personal lives, and even help us recognize early signs of Alzheimer's or dementia in someone close to us." - AFA International President Sara Nelson

June is Alzheimer's Awareness Month and we will show support by putting purple ribbons behind our AFA pins. Ask your Local AFA leader for purple ribbon. This action is unanimously supported by the AFA Board of Directors. Join us and do what you love to support those facing Alzheimer's. Find out more about Alzheimer's >
