The Longest Day is almost here and we at Senior Lifestyle are honored to support the Alzheimer’s Association’s mission and to once again 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 $11,000 toward our $50,000 goal!
June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, a time to GO PURPLE to end Alzheimer’s, and at Senior Lifestyle, we’re proud to partner with the Alzheimer’s Association to raise funds for crucial research into Alzheimer’s Disease, research that we know will one day reveal a cure for this disease. Show your support in June by wearing purple, raising awareness on social media, and sharing your personal stories.
From the Alzheimer’s Association: “Get a head start on turning Facebook purple for Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month in June. Add our #ENDALZ frame to your profile picture. Simply click ‘Try it’ under the photo below or search “Alzheimer’s Association” at this link: facebook.com/profilepicframes.”
At Senior Lifestyle, our commitment to supporting those who live, support, care for, and walk alongside those 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 Senior Lifestyle’s way of uniting to support the families around the nation so that no family is alone in their fight.
The Longest Day is all about love, and at Senior Lifestyle we hope you’ll join us in showing love for everyone affected by Alzheimer’s, not only those with the disease but those who provide support as well. Choose an activity, find a team, make a donation, and MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the fight to end Alzheimer’s.
