According to the Alzheimer’s Association, there is an estimated 5.8 million Americans of all ages currently living with Alzheimer’s dementia. Is there anyone in your life living with this disease?
Whether you have a personal connection or not, please join us as we celebrate Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness month this June! There are many ways you can join the fight – one of the first ways is to help spread awareness of the disease and its prevalence in our community.
You can raise awareness in a variety of different ways; sharing a personal story/experience, participating in a local Alzheimer’s sponsored event, donating to the cause, volunteering, and so much more. Every year, Open Arms Solutions joins the fight and participates in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s – North Shore, IL. This year the OAS team will walk on September 14 to help raise funds, awareness and support for Alzheimer’s. We walk for our family members, we walk for our friends, we walk for our clients! If you would like to help us raise money for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, click here and view our Team Page or to learn more on how to get involved, click here.
Open Arms Solutions not only understands and supports the importance awareness plays in the eventual cure of this disease, but also the treatment and care of individuals living with Alzheimer’s/Dementia. We offer a specialized care plan for clients living with Alzheimer’s/Dementia, Embrace by Open Arms Solutions. This program works with each aging parent and family to provide a certified dementia care specialist and a caregiver who has completed advanced memory care training. Embrace by Open Arms is structured, proven dementia care that provides a loving approach to mutually fulfilling care-giving and care-receiving relationships.
