I am publishing the link to this article, ‘Keep Memories Alive’, for a very simple reason.

The event raised more than $300,000 at the seventh annual Keep Memories Alive walk affair.

Proceeds benefit scholarships to Day Center participants, Day Center activities and caregiver support programs.

Imagine, an Alzheimer's walk around a mall in Boca Raton to raise money for day care scholarships, day center activities, and caregiver support. I wonder how many towns have a program like this one?

I wonder how many Alzheimer's caregivers could benefit from a one day a week scholarship to a day center for Alzheimer's patient.

Would you like to have 8 hours off, one day a week, for a year?

Imagine, one day off a week. A day where you could do anything you cared to do.

Do you think a day off would improve your caregiving effort? Go ahead, answer in the comments section below.

Congratulations to The Caring Hearts Auxiliary of Florida Atlantic University’s Louis and Anne Green Memory and Wellness Center and their generous sponsors.

You are actually doing something that will improve the lives of Alzheimer's caregivers. Something real and tangible.

I bet the persons living with Alzheimer's are also very grateful.
