My grandma and I have requested over 10 times to have her removed from the Alzheimer's Association's mailing lists, yet she continues to get mail from them asking for donations on a regular basis. My grandma suffers from dementia herself and often sends money to charities multiple times a week because she can't remember that she already sent them money. Being an organization that is supposed to support people who suffer from dementia, I can't fathom why they would continue to send her multiple mailings, despite being requested to remove her from their list so many times. It is completely disheartening to know that this charity is prowling the same people that they are supposed to be helping and squeezing as much money as they can out of them!
