New Year, New Goals

Violette Peters and her mother Ablyne Winge.

Happy New Year!

Thanks to all of your help in 2011, we were able to

  • Field 8,228 calls to our 24/7 helpline.
  • Educate 19,354 people on caring for someone with Alzheimer’s Disease.
  • Provide care consultations to 2,093 people.
  • Help 8,606 people find a community in a support group.
  • Enroll 316 people with Alzheimer’s or Dementia who may wander in our Safe Return + Medic Alert program, and specially train 2,315 law enforcement officials in locating and helping those people with Alzheimer’s who wander.
  • Provide 650 people with Early Stage Alzheimer’s programs for support, such as Art 4 Alzheimer’s.
  • Provide 2,643 caregivers a break through our respite programs.

Overall, we provided care and support to over 98,000 people in Georgia dealing with Alzheimer’s Disease, but it’s not enough. There are currently over 200,000 people in Georgia living with Alzheimer’s Disease, and more than 500,000 affected by Alzheimer’s through their role as caregivers, and that number is dramatically increasing. To help them, we need your help. In 2012, help us go above and beyond what was done in 2011 by offering your continued support.

Whether it be through talking about us on your facebook, tweeting, blogging, liking, tagging, Walking to End Alzheimer’s, Donating, Volunteering, or whatever you can do to help.

Together, we can see a world without Alzheimer’s.
