A Profile of Alzheimer’s Advocate of Brad Sudol

In his main career, Bradley Sudol must be happy because he’s been so successful as a certified master electrician in his hometown of Philadelphia. There, he is a certified specialist in low-voltage wiring whose clients know he does great work, in part because he has so much experience on which to rely, as well as his training on the job. They know he performs his work safely, because he has been certified as a safe electrician by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Of course, they have also watched him work that way. Brad Sudol also is certified by NCCER as both a carpenter and an electrician, if you need more proof of his competence. He’s also certified to work on fire alarms.

Of course, Brad Sudol has other interests beyond his work. Whenever he’s not being one of the finest electricians in Philadelphia and thereabouts, Brad works hard as an advocate for those who suffer from Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia, affecting up to 80 percent of all dementia sufferers. While Alzheimer’s is primarily associated with the elderly, and they are, by far, the most common age group who suffer from it, one-in-20 Alzheimer’s sufferers are afflicted with the “early-onset” version of the disease, which can affect people who are only in their 40s or 50s.

Alzheimer’s seriously affects memory, thinking and behavior and the effects are felt by more than just the sufferer; the family also is impacted. The memory loss is often severe enough to lead to impact the sufferer’s daily life, to the point that it often requires daily nursing care to maintain their lifestyle.

Bradley Sudol – Electrician Against Alzheimer’s

What a person does for a living is often what they spend the majority of their time on. The tasks involved with their work can be all encompassing. That being said, what a person does as a profession does not have to define them. A person can make a choice to let their work be their work and something else be their passion. Bradley Sudol is as a master electrician as a profession and he has worked hard to be exemplary at his job. He is certified in N.C.C.E.R., low voltage wiring, fire alarm nicet, osha, and others as well as an accomplished carpenter. He does take his occupation seriously and works to make sure his clients are all taken care of to the best of his abilities. When he is not working as an electrician or carpenter, he is putting his efforts towards supporting the different organizations that are working and doing the research towards a permanent cure for Alzheimer’s as well as better detection and treatment options.

Alzheimer’s currently affects over 5.5 million Americans. This number is continually growing and does not include the families and friends that must watch their loved ones struggle through the symptoms of this disease. While there are options for treatments, none are a cure which means the disease continues to progress while the patients take the medications provided. Bradley Sudol volunteers and donates to an organization called “Walk to End Alzheimer’s Association.” Walk to End Alzheimer’s Association is a national organization that raises awareness and financial support for a cure as well as research and detection methods.
