It's that time of year again! On October 20th 2019, team RJFS will once again be participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer's Disease. I am walking first and foremost in memory of my grandma, Helen Forman, who lost her battle with Alzheimer's Disease on August 26th, 2012. No matter how much time passes, Grandma Helen will always be remembered as an exceptional woman, full of love, compassion and respect for everyone around her and a smile and giggle that could light up any room.
As an Occupational Therapist in the geriatric community, Alzheimer's and Dementia is something I deal with on a regular basis. So once again, I am also walking in honor of my patients and for the countless people suffering with Alzheimer's disease, their loved ones and professional care takers that care for them at all times.
Jason, Michael, Justin and I have once again committed to participating in the Alzheimer's Memory Walk on Sunday October 20th, 2019 at Provident Bank Park. I will be walking as part of the Rockland Jewish Family Service Team. I am asking for your help in supporting the mission of the Alzheimer's Association which is to eliminate Alzheimer's Disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
If you yourself have cared for someone with Alzheimer's disease or know someone who has faced the challenge and heartbreak of watching and caring for someone with this disease, please donate to this important cause. With enough funds toward research, hopefully we will be able to prevent and eradicate this very devastating disease in the near future. The end of Alzheimer's Disease starts here.
Please go to the following website to make your donation:
