I have been working with seniors for 11 years in senior living and most have had Alzheimer's or another form of dementia. Watching them change over time is hard but making the most of each day they have with us is what make my job so special. I started as an LNA and transitioned into the Activities Director roll after working at Kirkwood Corners for about a year. Listening to residents stories and happy memories is one of my favorite things. Helping them make new memories and keeping the memory fresh by taking a lot of pictures to share with them is also something that I think is important.
Recently my Step Father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's making the walk this year even more special to me so we can honor him and help to find treatments to make this disease easier on those who have it.
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.
