What makes time fly for you? Do you read? Knit? Jump rope? Bake chocolate chip cookies? For some of us, a book, a cup of tea, and a quiet corner can make an entire day disappear; for others, spending time outdoors is the best part of any 24 hours. However you choose to spend your time, be sure to join Senior Lifestyle in making June 21st the BEST Longest Day ever! On The Longest Day, people everywhere are doing what they love, challenging others to join the fight against Alzheimer’s, learning how to love their brains and raising funds for research into a cure.
For families dealing with the challenges of an Alzheimer’s diagnosis, every day can seem like the longest day; according to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 5 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s, with another case developing every 66 seconds. Care for those with the disease is provided by an estimated 15.9 million friends and family members in the U.S alone. These numbers are expected to skyrocket, with an estimated 75 million people worldwide developing the disease by 2030.
At Senior Lifestyle, we’re proud to partner with the Alzheimer’s Association to raise funds for crucial research into the disease, research that we hope will lead to a cure for Alzheimer’s 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.
When memories fade, moments matter greatly, and that philosophy is at the heart of our memory care program ‘embrace’ and our passion for The Longest Day. To learn more about The Longest Day event in your area, visit the Alzheimer’s Association website or our website at Senior Lifestyle to find a community near you. We hope you’ll join us in support of those with Alzheimer’s by organizing or joining a team, or just doing what you love to embrace the fight with us!
