Ella Ragland was my Aunt and she was a fine person and also an outstanding artist. She died of complications related to Alzheimer's disease. Joyce Ragland is her daughter and also my cousin as her father and my mother were brother and sister. I cared for my mother in her home and my home from 1999 until she died in 2006. She was confined to her bed for the last 14 months of her life and also suffered from dementia during that time. It was not diagnosed as Alzheimer's but was dementia just the same. So I am very much in favor of anything at all that can be done for anyone who is suffering from dementia of any kind. I know that my cousin, Joyce Ragland, is very dedicated to this cause and will do a fine job with anything she does using Ella Ragland Art as a means to help. Thank you. John Watts.

This is a wonderful charity; they raise funds for Alzheimer's patients. The officers all donate their services, no one receives any pay. They have a two year project at a nursing home with Alzheimer's and other dementia patients called Inter-Active Music. They do pay a musician to provide activities with patients three times a month. They have also donated activity aprons, dolls, prints, and greeting cards to patients and staff in several different skilled nursing facilities.
