Walk to End Alzheimer’s with Azura

Why We Walk2014-09-27 10.04.08

Currently, over 5.4 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease and it is now the 6th leading cause of death in the country.  It is often hard to imagine how we can make a difference against a disease that steals so much.

But there is something we can do to stop this devastating disease. We can walk together to end it.  Held locally, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s raises funds for the Alzheimer’s Association, a nonprofit organization which offers support for those touched by the disease, while being the leading voluntary funder of research to find a cure.

Azura Memory Care provides the volunteer services of our Team to help Chair and assist with the Walks in each of our communities.  We do this because, every day we are witness to how this disease steals more than just memories.  It truly robs us of the person that we know, care for and love.  That is why we walk.

Many of our residents at Azura have been with us for many years.  We have had the honor and heartbreak of taking care of them through various stages of the disease.  We watch helpless as Alzheimer’s ravages not just their minds, but their bodies as well.  They are why we walk

Daily we are left in aweWalk to End Alzheimer's Logo of the family and friends who without hesitation become caregivers because of Alzheimer’s disease.  We are humbled by their compassion and lifted by the kind words and praise that they bestow on us.  You are why we walk.

We walk… because we care and today we need a cure, so that tomorrow we can all remember.  For the betterment of our Community, that is why we walk.
