I have the privilege of serving as the Chief Operations Officer at Retreat Healthcare. Our team is honored to care for our residents and families on a daily basis and our goal is to make our community their best last home. I cannot tell you how difficult it is to lose your loved one twice-once to this terrible disease and again when they pass away. I have dedicated my career to helping those affected by this disease and I want better treatment and outcomes. This can't happen unless we make a difference now.
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. Alzheimer's disease is the SIXTH leading cause of death with NO effective treatment.
I need your support to do my part! Please make a donation to help the Alzheimer's Association advance research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's. For the millions already affected by the disease, the Association offers care, education, support and resources in communities nationwide.
Thank you for joining our movement! The end of Alzheimer's disease starts here.
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
