I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!
For my own personal reasons of living the day to day life of caring for my mother. This is why I am taking on my own walk team. My mother was still in the earlier stages of the disease and was only just starting to wonder, but was slowing starting to shut herself off from the rest of the world, by wanting to only sit in her room and watch her shows. We found an adult day care for mom, that she loved going to it started to bring her back out of her shell and want to do more stuff with the family. Adult day cares are a great tool for families who can still take care of mom or dad, but just need a little help for a few hours a day, a week, and even a month. It all depends on what each family needs help with. We are very fortunate that mom never got to the point of where this devastating disease can take a person. Yes we had our challenges and at one point mom got aggressive, but we were able to get her back to almost herself. I want to raise awareness and hope for families to one day be able to finally be able to beat this devastating disease and show off our white flowers. If you or someone else you know is battling with Alzheimer's or other Dementias you are not alone and there are many people fighting the fight to help stop this disease, by donating, sponsoring teams, giving advice, sharing knowledge, caring for their loved ones, and working in facilities that take care of people that unfortunately have some form of Alzheimer's. My Daughter Morgan is the Dining Services Manager at Country Meadows in their Memory Support Building and has been working there for 7 years. For a brief time I had worked with her in her building, and have seen many different stages of the disease and how it not only affects the residents and families, but it affects the co-workers too.
Thank you for helping us advance Alzheimer's support, care and research!
