Working Towards a Brighter Future
Alzheimer's and Dementia have an increasing presence in our country, our families and our lives. We all know someone who has struggled with the challenges of living with the disease or caring for a loved one who has the disease. Like other illnesses it is painful to watch. If your loved one lives long enough, the phrase 'once a man, twice a child takes on new meaning. Because of our personal experiences in our families or in our professions, all of our founding members and directors felt the need to create a place where others in need can find help and support. Because of our personal and first hand experience with a mother, or father, or an in law, an aunt or uncle, husband or wife, a loved one, we want to be here for others.

Do not ask me to remember,
Don’t try to make me understand,
Let me rest and know you’re with me,
Kiss my cheek and hold my hand.
I’m confused beyond your concept,
I am sad and sick and lost.
All I know is that I need you
To be with me at all cost.
Do not lose your patience with me,
Do not scold or curse or cry.
I can’t help the way I’m acting,
Can’t be different though I try.
Just remember that I need you,
That the best of me is gone,
Please don’t fail to stand beside me,
Love me ’til my life is done.
