Here at Generations at Rock Island we support the fight against Alzheimer’s and dementia. Every year we assemble a team and get to work on brainstorming ideas about fundraising efforts to make our participation in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s a success! Generations at Rock Island is one of the hubs of Generations Healthcare Network’s Alzheimer and dementia wards. Though all facilities offer residents care for these illnesses, we have a special unit and program that helps individuals to maintain optimal level of independence and quality of life in a secured and safe environment.
The Alzheimer’s Association has sponsored a walk that focuses on raising awareness on the battle of Alzheimer’s and fighting to the end the disease since 1989. In 2015 more than 50,000 teams participated in more than 600 Walks across the country, raising more than $75 million.
On September 16th, the Generations at Rock Island team participated in The Walk to End Alzheimer’s at the iWireless Center in Moline, IL. We had a vendor table and were the exclusive sponsors of the photo station- a new and exciting attraction this year! Attendees, our staff, their friends and family could not have asked for a better day. The crowds were big and buzzing with excitement.
Generations at Rock Island is passionate about this cause and had a great time participating in these events. The event is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Our facility cannot wait for next year!
