We walk in memory of my mom – Betty Schneider who passed away from complications of Alzheimer’s disease back in August 2018. Please help us in the fight against this insidious disease by joining us for the Walk To End Alzheimer’s coming up Saturday September 7th at 12:00 PM in Alexandria, MN.
It was difficult to watch as Alzheimer’s slowly took its toll on Mom and our family. My grandkids never knew Nana without Alzheimer’s. They grew up knowing that Nana would repeat the same questions and say the same things over and over again. They learned to answer the questions like they never answered them before. Over time, she lost complete touch with her world and eventually succumbed to the disease, but not after having devastating effects on our entire family.
Alzheimer’s and dementia care are a specialty of Alternative Senior Care. We understand that caring for a loved with memory loss can be both overwhelming and exhausting.

Please consider joining our team, it costs nothing to join. You don’t even need to walk… just show up! If you have a hard time raising funds, become a volunteer. If you’re busy that day, perhaps you’ll make a donation to our team. 77% of all funds raised go back to support, research and advocacy. Help us on the journey to find Alzheimer’s very first survivor.
