Have you heard? The Longest Day is approaching and we’re absolutely PURPLE with excitement! June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, a time to GO PURPLE to end Alzheimer’s, raise awareness, and share the love on June 21st by participating in The Longest Day. Worldwide, 47 million people are living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Senior Lifestyle is spreading the word in the fight against Alzheimer’s. Our goal is to share the important mission of the Alzheimer’s Association, and we hope to raise awareness with each person we reach.
Our commitment to supporting those who live, support, care for, and walk alongside others on this journey is also a personal one. Like so many others around the country, our employees are personally impacted by this disease; we are sisters, brothers, daughters and sons of people battling Alzheimer’s. One team member summarized this impact perfectly when they said, “Watching my Dad’s face when he was given the diagnosis of Early Stage Alzheimer’s was one of the hardest days of my life. From that day on, my commitment to the Alzheimer’s Association and to improving care and treatment for those living with this disease became more than a profession, it became my personal mission.” Our participation in The Longest Day is for our family, and it is Senior Lifestyle’s way of uniting to support other families around the nation, so that no family is alone in their fight.
At Senior Lifestyle, we are proud to partner with the Alzheimer’s Association to raise funds for crucial research into Alzheimer’s Disease, research that we hope will one day reveal a cure for this disease. We are honored to support the Alzheimer’s Association’s mission and to be a Global Partner in this year’s The Longest Day event. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to support the efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association, to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s, and to provide support to the residents, families, and communities that call Senior Lifestyle home. As of today, we’ve raised over $17,000 toward our $50,000 goal!
Join the fight! To learn more about how our communities are celebrating The Longest Day and how you can get involved, visit the Senior Lifestyle website. Remember, each person who learns more about Alzheimer’s disease inspires action, so GO PURPLE for the Alzheimer’s Association, spread the word, and support Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month this June!
