I have been active with Alzheimer's Services since 1993. The growth in services over the years has been phenomenal. The number of people touched, and the variety of ways that victims, caregivers and others are helped, are extraordinary. Please get involved yourself - there are many ways to participate.

Alzheimer's Services serves such a tremendous need for the Baton Rouge area, and their staff executes its mission to perfection. I have been nothing short of continually impressed in being able to observe how this organization responds so adeptly to the needs of the community - one of the true bright spots in the world of non-profits in Baton Rouge.

My review is likely quite different from others. I was asked to serve on the Alzheimers Board primarily to attempt to create more knowledge and interest in the organization from one of our outlying parishes. At the same time, however, I have friends who are caretakers for spouses with the disease, and other friends who are adult children of people with the disease. They clearly wonder what will happen to them as they grow older. Being a baby boomer myself, I understand the absolute need for additional information to get out there about it all. This is basically a situation where we as citizens will need to rely on each other as we battle the onslought of Alzheimers, and together, with pertinent information and expertise, we can make life better for everyone. Our organization is a wonderful conduit to that goal.
