At Alternative Senior Care, Alzheimer’s and dementia care is a specialty of ours. That is why we formed a team to raise funds and Walk(ed) To End Alzheimer’s disease. Not only did we achieve our team fundraising goal of $2500, we exceeded it and finished at $3075!
Alexandria MN held their first Walk To End Alzheimer’s on Saturday October 6th, 2018. It was a smashing success! Despite cool temperatures Saturday afternoon, around 200 people participated in the Walk held at Big Ole Central Park in Alexandria. The event raised more than $46,000.
Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
At Alternative Senior Care we understand that caring for a loved with memory loss can be both overwhelming and exhausting. We are committed to providing the highest quality of care to your loved one with memory loss. Our personal assistants are specially trained to recognize, listen and respond to the unique needs of a person struggling with dementia. We develop an individual care plan that considers your loved one’s interests, history and current level of functioning. We want to travel this journey with you and assist you in any way we can.
We are still working to help the Chapter meet their goal. If you’d like to make a donation, please send them in! Donations should be mailed to the Alzheimer’s Association, 7900 West 78th Street, Suite 100, Minneapolis, MN 55439. Please include the Alexandria, MN Walk location and our team name – Alternative Senior Care.
