Avamere Helps Raise Money and Awareness to End Alzheimer’s

Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. This inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions!

Avamere participated in a big way with staff across multiple locations joining in walks and other events to help raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, money raised helps fund support networks for individuals and families afflicted with the disease, drives research toward treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure, and speaks up for the needs and rights of people affected by Alzheimer’s.

The Pearl at Kruse Way hosted an art auction benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association. Over 30 pieces of art were auctioned, with most of the pieces created by residents of The Pearl Memory Care community through the guidance of the Memory Care Life Enrichment Director, Nonnie George. Nonnie was inspired to create the event after attending a Memories in the Making course through the Alzheimer’s Association. Along with the silent auction for the art, past and current families with loved ones at The Pearl spoke on how Alzheimer’s has affected them and their lives. The event raised over $2,000.
