As many of you know, we, as a family, have participated for many years in the Westchester Walk To End Alzheimer's.
This year, more than ever, we have been able to witness firsthand and appreciate just how valuable the care and support provided to patients and their families can be. In April, Lisa's mom was transferred into the memory care unit of her assisted living facility due to continued deterioration in her cognitive abilities. The quality of this care and support could not be more different from what we experienced decades ago, when there were no services available to aid our family after Stu's mom was diagnosed with "early onset" Alzheimer's Disease. And it is why we continue this journey to ensure that future generations will never have to face the frustration and emotional and financial toll that Alzheimer's Disease and related forms of dementia can have on a family.
