Support Alzheimer's Foundation of America

Although it is important to support the search for a cure for Alzheimer’s, the holiday season is also a good time to support the cause of caring for those who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. Ensuring quality care for those individuals who suffer fro the disease should not be overlooked. To join in supporting this cause you can purchase a holiday gift from the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America eStore, or gift a donation, where all proceeds will benefit the foundation.

It is important that Alzheimer’s patients receive quality care and one of the ways we can ensure that happens is to support the foundation by making donations or purchases from the eStore. It is estimated that Alzheimer's disease affects more than five million Americans and it’s projected that the number of Americans with Alzheimer's disease (a progressive, degenerative disorder that attacks the brain's nerve cells, or neurons, resulting in loss of memory, thinking and language skills, and behavioral changes) could more than triple to 16 million by mid-century.

The AFA eStore has an exclusive collection of fine jewelry, “Hearts of Care,” which recognizes the love that caregivers show. It is high-quality jewelry that includes a matching necklace, bracelet and pin with custom designed pendants. The eStore also has a four-part DVD training program that is an excellent purchase for family and professional caregivers.

According to their website, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s mission is “to provide optimal care and services to individuals confronting dementia, and to their caregivers and families—through member organizations dedicated to improving quality of life.” Let’s assist in this mission and support the foundation this holiday season by purchasing gifts from or making donations to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America eStore. Don’t forget: All proceeds from your purchases and donations benefit the foundation… now that’s the ultimate gift of giving.
