June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month, a time to go purple to show support for the millions of people worldwide struggling with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. At Senior Lifestyle, we support The Alzheimer’s Association’s commitment to finding a cure for Alzheimer’s by participating in The Longest Day, a fundraiser that focuses on participants doing what they love to raise money for researching treatments and a cure for this disease.
Senior Lifestyle participates in The Longest Day in ways unique to each individual community. From vendor fairs to family fun days to raffles and silent auctions, each group of team members, residents and families offer fun ways to support the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association: “To eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.”
At Senior Lifestyle we’re proud to promote The Longest Day and we encourage our communities to reach out to the surrounding areas to join in the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease. There’s still so much to be done, but we are confident that with heightened awareness and fundraising efforts we can achieve the vision of the Alzheimer’s Association: A world without Alzheimer’s.
