Troubled by the lack of specialised care available to the growing number of senior citizens; we óat Home Insteadó aims to give the best care possible for the elderly
A local Home Instead franchise will be participating in a sponsored walk to raise awareness of Alzheimerís and other forms of dementia.
Home Instead Senior Care is on a mission to raise money for the Alzheimerís Association as it launches a fundraising campaign ahead of a charity walk.
The home care providerís Manassas, Virginia franchise is aiming to raise as much money as possible when its staff participate in the upcoming Walk to End Alzheimerís, which is hosted by the Alzheimerís Association.
The event sees 400,000 people come together in over 600 locations across America to raise money and awareness of the life-ending illness that blights so many families. Itís open to people of all ages and the fun day aims to fund ground-breaking research that hopes to find a cure as soon as possible.
Home Instead Manassas has a modest fundraising goal of $2,500, but hopes that it can encourage the local community to donate generously to support its staff as they participate. The franchise explained that itís motivated to take part in the event by a desire to see the end of Alzheimerís and other forms of dementia in the near future. It added that, as part of its commitment to enhancing and improving the lives of the elderly people it provides care for, it must also work hard to raise awareness of the issues they face.

Founded from a personal desire to ensure the elderly were able to access great care from the comfort of their own homes, itís committed to providing a service that maintains the dignity and independence of its clients at all times.
