According to the Alzheimer’s Association, an estimated 5.1 million people 65 and older have Alzheimer’s disease. They likely will lose one of their most treasured possessions: memories. The “I Will Remember for You Family Reunion Giveaway” contest recently launched by the Home Instead Senor Care® network can help those families keep their memories alive.
Submit a story in either written or video format about your experience with a family member living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias for a chance to win a family reunion – go to Remember for Alzheimer’s.
Essays and videos need to:
Share how Alzheimer’s has impacted your life.
Talk about the role that memories and remembering have played in your family, especially with regard to your family member who now has or had Alzheimer’s.
Share specific stories or examples of how you and your family members cope or coped with challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.
Tell why you deserve to win this family reunion.
