Walk to End Alzheimer’s #WALK2ENDALZ in Temecula
Constant Companions Home Care is putting together a Walk to End Alzheimer’s Team!
We are very excited to be participating in our first ever Temecula walk and would like to extend an invitation to any and all people in the area who have been affected by this debilitating disease. The walk will be on September 27th at the Promenade Mall in Temecula at 9:00am. If you would like to join us for the walk, registration is at 7:00 am.
Over the years, it has be our privilege to provide Alzheimer’s care for many individuals and their families. Seeing the suffering first hand has made us more committed than ever to providing the loving support that both the client and the family’s needs. Our caregivers are wonderful and compassionate, the clients and their families are amazing and courageous. We strive to provide moments of joy and relief but sadly, it is often not enough to ease the perpetual underlying stress and sadness.
Funding for research remains stagnant while the cost to treat and care for these individuals continues to climb. Currently, 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s. That number is expected to grow to 16 million by 2050. The costs are staggering, 17.9 billion hours of unpaid care, a contribution to the nation valued at $217.7 billion.
We are committed to working with the Alzheimer’s Association in supporting their work because when one person has Alzheimer’s, it touches so many lives. The Alzheimer’s Association has been amazing in their efforts to fund research into the treatment, prevention and the ultimate cure. It is also a resource and support system for the millions of people that are caring for or living with Alzheimer’s.
If the statistics bear out, there is a very good chance that all of us will have to face this disease in our lifetime either as a caregiver or the patient. Take a moment to look at our Walk to End Alzheimer’s page and let us know how you can help out. You can walk with us and raise money from your family and friends or you can donate directly to our team.
The goal is $2,000. For the cost of a latte, less than a fast food meal, less than the price of a movie ticket….If every person who reads this post donates $5, we will surpass our goal!
