My experience with people living with Alzheimer's begins with my grandfather, David Walter Jones who died at 75 from it. I was just 15 and very little understanding of what was happening to him and I really was not present for him or my grandmother, tasked with his care, at all. I regret that even today. Much later, my mother developed vascular dementia and I am pleased to be able to say that I with her to the very end. In between, countless clients and their families come in and out of my life struggling with the disease and nearly as bad, the toll that caring for someone living with dementia takes on the family and friends. Emotionally, physically, spiritually and yes, financially. It is devastating.
The Alzheimer's Association helps in so many ways. It is the least I can do to try to give something back. I hope you will too. Even the smallest donation will help. If you spend money on a coffee every day, can you skip just one? Maybe two and make a donation instead? It goes a very long way and I am grateful for your help!
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
