Celebrating the life of those with Alzheimer's

My grandmother who passed away earlier this year suffered from Alzheimer's. She would have turned 90 in September. No one really knew the extent of her case until the moment she fell and broke her hip and had to have surgery and then stay in a Rehabilitation Home. They classified it as Sundowner's Syndrome. All that means is that her Alzheimer's mainly affected her at night or in the early hours of the morning. When my Aunt stayed with her she said her bad nights were horrible and her good nights were only so bad.

Social Spark has teamed up with the Alzheimer's Association this year in the Alzheimer's Memory Walk.

All around the United States this fall walks will be conducted to help raise awareness for this disease and raised money to hopefully one day find a cure. And to also honor the memory of the lives claimed by it.

A typical walk is anywhere from 2-3 miles so its not that far of a distance. And with atleast 600 communities holding walks I am sure that there is one near you.

You too can make a difference by setting up a team of walkers in your neighborhood. Go ahead and do something good. Walk for your neighbor, your own family member, a church member.
