Hello all! It started with a missed phone call and ended with a new responsibility for care of my great uncle, Howard, who was newly diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Fortunately, I found the best place for his care, close to us at the Garden House at Merrill Gardens, Gilroy. I have enjoyed visiting and getting to know the team members at Merrill Gardens over the past 3 years so much so, that I decided to join the team! In what was a very stressful time trying to navigate the diagnosis and care for Howard, I found caring members of the team and in doing so, I found my own passion! I now work for Merrill Gardens and I am blessed with caring for the residents, their families and I have the privilege of working with a passionate and caring team. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, I’m raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association® to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.
Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation or register as a participant and start your own fundraising. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease.
All the best!
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
