My Grandma DeAngelis died with Alzheimer's as did my Grandpa McAllister. Alzheimer's is a heartbreaking disease for family and a degrading, frustrating, and embarrassing disease for the patient. I am an Adult Geriatric Nurse Practitioner. I have seen how terrible this disease is first hand with my own family, and I have seen it in my patient's and how it impacts their families. Often times the patient lashes out at the person they love the most and their caregiver (spouse, child, sibling). It does not have to be that way. The Alzheimer's Association has many wonderful resources which can help. They are also working on research as well as working hard to provide care, comfort, and resources to Alzheimer's patients and their families. Please help in our fight against Alzheimer's disease. If each person gave a little, we would make a huge difference in this fight. Come fight with me.
Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. 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.
