Why We Walk: HealthPRO Heritage is passionately committed to helping the fight against Alzheimer’s Disease, and we are thrilled to participate as a national sponsor for the Walk to end Alzheimer’s. On behalf of our eager team of therapists & support staff, I share our mission and vision for this special opportunity.
It’s unimaginable that 5+ million people are affected by Alzheimer’s, and this incidence rate is projected to triple by 2050. This staggering statistic, and because all of us have loved and lived among those impacted by Alzheimer’s and dementia, drives HealthPRO Heritage’s 2020 mission: To be a light in the lives forever changed by Alzheimer’s.
As a national provider of therapy & wellness services, HealthPRO Heritage understands the bittersweet challenges related to Alzheimer’s and dementia. Every day our therapists work alongside patients, caregivers, and families in senior living communities and long-term care facilities who have been affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia. As such, we are ideally suited to help drive important initiatives that can truly make a positive difference. (Please learn more about HealthPRO Heritage’s Three Pillars of Purpose: Education + Engagement + Advocacy — our framework for an abundance of Alzheimer’s and dementia resources, webinars, promotional items, health literacy, education and trainings for staff and caregivers, and even a photo contest for frontline staff!)
It’s a genuine privilege to work in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association who is supporting us in our first year as national walk team. Thank you for the opportunity to come together with renewed mission and vision that is at the heart of what we do and is the essential nature of our higher calling.
To our colleagues, peers, family members and client partners we say: We are with you in the fight against Alzheimer’s! Together we can tackle the challenges and leverage the opportunities to Be a light in the lives forever changed by Alzheimer’s!
