Alzheimer's Disease has most certainly not been virtual during the COVID-19 pandemic. For the nearly 6 million people living with Alzheimer's Disease and their care partners, these past two years have put even more challenges in their paths. Many programs that provide stimulation and relief closed or reduced services. Facilities serving those with Alzheimer's Disease worked hard to connect residents with their families although the lockdowns were challenging and even devastating.
Throughout all of this, the Alzheimer's Association was there with information, support, education and specific resources addressing the pandemic. All of the resources and support offered by the Association are free of charge.
Although I have retired from my full time work as an Aging Life Care™ professional, I continue my work with the Alzheimer's Association. I walk in honor and in memory of all of my clients who are or were affected by these terrible diseases. I have also confronted this disease in my own family. I am continuing on as captain of JHC on the Move.
My personal goal this year is $3,500. I am the captain of JHC On The Move again this year and am excited to work with other members of the JHC care system to raise money as a larger team. We were the most improved organizational team last year, raising over $10,000. I invite you to join us in walking and raising funds from your own contacts. I welcome your company and your support. Contributions in any amount are very important and very much appreciated.
If you would rather not walk, please visit the website at My Fundraising Page http://act.alz.org/goto/jhconthemove2022_Deb. if you prefer, you can send a check to the Alzheimer's Association to me at 92 Barry Road, Worcester, MA 01609. I will forward it to the Association.
Together we can make a difference!
All the best,
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
