On June 20, people around the world mark the summer solstice—the longest day of the year—by fighting for a cure for Alzheimer’s. We at Sentrics are passionate about this fight because 1 in 10 people over the age of 65 suffers from Alzheimer’s and the number is growly…rapidly.
For the fifth year running, Sentrics team members are hosting Paint Sentrics Purple as a show of solidarity for Alzheimer’s Research and its “The Longest Day” fund raising program. The program raised funds for Alzheimer’s research while showing support and solidarity for Sentrics clients who care for seniors with and without Alzheimer’s-related conditions in thousands of communities across the country. This year Painting Sentrics Purple means, how can we make our brains more purple? Did you know that ‘engaging in mentally stimulating activities such as reading, writing, and playing games can improve brain health? Exercising your brain can help prevent beta-amyloid deposits from developing. These are the destructive proteins that have become the hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease.’ To learn how we can make our brains more purple, employees will dress up in their most purple costume on June 18th and we will get together for a virtual Purple Party that spans multiple states. During the party we will have different games and activities to educate attendees on how we can strengthen our brains and bodies to help prevent the effects of Alzheimer’s disease.
