What will we do?
We will build long lasting relationships with caregivers and family members that take care of loved ones or patients that have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's/Dementia. We intend to make sure that caregivers are knowledgeable when working with the afflicted through education workshops on how to relate to the different stages of Alzheimer's/Dementia. We plan to be a resource and build resources to meet the need of the caregivers and family members. Through events we will continue to raise Alzheimer's awareness in our communities to an international level. Please also join us in fundraisers to raise money for The Walk to end Alzheimer's and Alzheimer's research.
