100% of proceeds from the wine festival goes directly to the Alzheimer’s Alliance and it’s programs to much needed funds to provide resources, services and education for those affected with Alzheimer’s and other related dementias. The Alzheimer’s Alliance also provides OUR PLACE DAY RESPITE CENTER – a program designed to provide much needed rest and relief for caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s and related dementias. It also provides socialization for those diagnosed with the disease. With the help of the wine festival, the Alzheimer’s Alliance was able to add another day to the services of Our Place Respite Center, extending respite days to Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday each week. By offering this service it affords caregivers the freedom to focus on stress relief through rest and relaxation and time for important personal endeavors that are often neglected.
Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease that impacts the lives of over 17,000 families in our service area. The mission of the Alzheimer’s Alliance Tri-State is to empower those affected by Alzheimer’s and other related dementias with resources for enhancing their quality of life through education and support.
