Currently as many as 5.6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's. If the current trend continues, Alzheimer's will bankrupt families, communities, and our healthcare system. Nana's Angels will organize fundraiser nights at local restaurants and walk together in the Alzheimer's Walk on November 3, 2013. As a team our goal is to raise $2000 to support the Alzheimer's Association, who provide consultations, information, referrals, and support programs to our community. Each team member is asked to raise at least $25 dollars. Occupational therapy has much it can offer to this population, but most families are not aware of how they can benefit from an intervention. Help me contribute to an important cause today, by walking with us to raise awareness of our field and financial support for the people who have given so much to us!
