November 14, 2016
On Saturday, November 12, Presby’s Inspired Life team members (and their families) participated in the Philadelphia Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®. Presby joined more than 7,000 men and women for the event, which was held at Citizens Bank Park.
Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
Currently, three of the four Presby’s Inspired Life Market-Rate communities—Rydal Park, Broomall and Spring Mill—have units dedicated to supporting those with dementia and its related disorders.
- Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States.
- It’s the only cause of death in the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented, cured or slowed.
- In the United States, someone develops Alzheimer’s every 66 seconds.
