Dear Friends and Family:
Wouldn't it be great if our younger generations could grow up in a world without Alzheimer's? Or at least a world in which their condition could be treated? Or in which they felt supported?
Well, part of that world is here...thanks to the Alzheimer's Association, there are services that help educate and support individuals experiencing cognitive changes as well as their family members.
Locally, the Central New York Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association is providing an array of services. For example, they now offer a regular social program for individuals and their family members--meeting up at various venues across our region--to help people connect with others who are affected by Alzheimer's disease and related conditions. They also offer support groups for care partners as well as individuals. There are educational programs on a variety of topics. And a licensed mental health counselor is available to help family members come together to provide care in a coordinated and compassionate way.
So while it remains sad and sometimes disheartening to see the struggles that individuals with memory loss and their families experience, there also are clearly ways to help people.
And at the national level, the quest to find a cure continues.
In less than two weeks, on September 29th, I will be Walking to End Alzheimer's. Please help me support the great work that the Alzheimer's Association provides to our community.
Thanks so much for any donation that you can contribute!
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
