The life of each person who has been touched by a spouse, father, mother, friend, or neighbor who has Alzheimer's disease is never the same. Each person is motivated in different ways to help eliminate this disease and help ease the burden of caregivers. Some host events such as birthday, anniversary or retirement parties or golf tournaments and donate proceeds in the form of a tribute in honor of their loved one which could be earmarked for a specific purpose.
Many also encourage friends and family members to support the Association with gifts in lieu of flowers upon the death of their loved ones.
"My mother who is loved very much, is in the final stages of Alzheimer's disease. We know she would have wanted a cure to be found and would have wanted family caregivers to receive the help and support they need to fulfill their incredibly important task. When her time comes, in lieu of sending us flowers we request that you make a donation to the Alzheimer's Association in her memory."
One of the easiest ways to make this happen is to include a sentence in the obituary of a loved one that states the following:
"In lieu of cards and flowers, please send a donation to the Alzheimer's Association Desert Southwest Chapter, 1028 E. McDowell Road, Phoenix, AZ 85006"
The Desert Southwest Chapter has instituted a new special category of giving! An Honorary or Memorial Fund can now be established with a contribution of $500 in honor of a loved one. The initial contribution may be made by an individual, group, organization or corporation and can be established at any time. This gift can be used to support our programs for caregivers.
