I volunteered this year for Alzheimer's Services of the Capitol Area. I wanted to be of service to someone and I saw an article about them speaking at a Rotary meeting in my town. It brought back memories of my grandfather who had suffered and passed away from Alzheimers many years ago. I remember my grandmother always saying that the medical people would find a cure. She said it all the time and kept the faith till the end. That was 30 years ago!!! No cure has been found and the the number of Alzheimer's patients is growing and growing. I wish we would have had a Charlie's Place for my grandfather to attend and give my grandmother very much needed rest. Also, all the resources this organization provides is invaluable especially when one is reeling from the diagnosis and doesn't know where to turn. The staff is very knowledgable and above all so caring! I enjoyed my time there last Spring and I am returning this Fall to help with their Walk/Run to Remember and other tasks as needed. They are a great organization! They are making a difference to so many people!!
