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 fourth year running, Sentrics team members painted our offices purple this week in 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. Caring for residents with Alzheimer’s-related conditions is common in these communities. So common in fact, that 66% of those who die of dementia, do so in nursing homes or senior living facilities according to the Alzheimer’s Association’s 2020 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures special report.
