Walk To Help Remember

Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease. When I worked as a Home Health Social Worker, I’ve seen how intelligent, vibrant people change so drastically. Some became unable to feed themselves. Some became combative. Some would wander by getting out of their own homes and then get lost. Some would seem fine until you tried to have a conversation with them.

Families were devastated by this disease too. Seeing a family member change before your eyes and having to make decisions about caring for that person is difficult to say the least.

There have been a lot of advances in research concerning Alzheimer’s but nothing close to a cure. The Alzheimer’s Association is working toward that goal in many ways. This group holds a fundraising event called the Alzheimer’s Memory Walk. It is a yearly event held throughout the US. There is always a need for walkers and team captains. Taking part in something like this makes you feel that you are doing more than just helping to raise money. You get to talk with others as you walk, form friendships and be proactive in the fight against this disease.
