Gallup police arrest suspects in Albuquerque
ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – More than a thousand new Mexicans headed out Saturday to support families and loved ones facing Alzheimer’s disease. On Saturday, volunteers went to Mariposa Park on the west side and walked a two and a half mile distance while remembering the people who died from the disease.
In New Mexico alone, more than 43,000 people have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. The organizers even want the caretakers to know what resources are available to assist them. “There is [sic] over 100,000 unpaid caregivers working in the area, a quarter of whom are often sandwiches who raise children and care for their aging parents, “said Stephanie W. Telles, co-chair of the Central New Mexico Walk to End Alzheimers.
