BENEFITING: HEBREW SENIORLIFE
Dear Family & Friends,
Did you know 1 in 9 seniors age 65 and older have Alzheimer’s? Alarming isn’t it! For those of you who do not know, my Dad is 1 of those 9! At the early age of 69, my Dad was diagnosed with early onset dementia, and now 2 years later we can say Alzheimer’s had kicked in and we are a family losing a loved one slowly every day to Alzheimer’s.
Hebrew SeniorLife is creating an Alzheimer's Center of Excellence and we need philanthrophy to get it off the ground.
This newly created Center will provide a unified set of preventive, diagnostic, CARE and complementary services; it will conduct clinical RESEARCH; increase FAMILY empowerment; and become a MODEL of CARE for Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
The Center will address a person's care from diagnosis to end of life. The Center with TRAIN staff and students in caring for seniors at all stages of dementia, creating best practices, and providing support for families and caregivers.
When it comes time for MY DAD to find a new home, this is where he will be, and this is the BEST of the BEST, and I hope you will help me in supporting this newly created Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence!
