Celebrity Fight Night
 
 

We are looking forward to winning the fight for Alzheimer’s together on March 23rd when we raise our hands to pledge our support, knowing every $10,000 donation will provide 10 families with the support they need each year to battle this disease. Together we can make a difference and continue the fight for charities.

EVERY $10,000 RAISED PROVIDES SUPPORT TO 10 ALZHEIMER’S AND DEMENTIA FAMILIES FOR ONE YEAR!

The Alzheimer’s and Memory Disorders Program at Barrow Neurological Institute sees 3,500 patients each year. It costs an average of $10,000 per year to provide caregiver and patient support services for 10 families dealing with the challenges of Alzheimer’s and dementia. This includes medical assistants, nurses, program coordinators, patient outreach groups, and a full- time social worker. In addition, telemedicine can reduce disruptions caused by trips to and from the clinic, and dedicated support teams will ease the burdens on caregivers while patients are in treatment.

ABOUT CAREGIVERS FOR ALZHEIMER’S

Though helping a patient can be a profound and moving journey, caregivers’ needs are often overlooked. They may suffer stress, guilt, anger, sadness, isolation and burnout. The health care system focuses on patients, so their caregivers too often slip by unnoticed until it is too late. Sadly, caregiver support is not covered by insurance plans. We ask for your support so Barrow can continue to hold the hands of these unsung and unpaid heroes.

Barrow seeks to push the boundaries of care to include those on the frontlines: the sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, husbands, wives and loved ones who care for these patients day-in and day-out. Help us support caregivers and the patients that they love. It’s time to say goodbye to “Diagnose and Adios” where families are sent home from their appointments with no further offer of support through this trying time.
