On behalf of the Alzheimer’s Association, you’re invited to watch the new PBS documentary Age of Champions today, April 18th – 28th at www.ageofchampions.org/premiere.
Age of Champions tells the story of five competitors who sprint, leap, and swim for gold at the National Senior Olympics. You’ll meet a 100-year-old tennis champion, 86-year-old pole vaulter, and rough-and-tumble basketball grandmothers as they triumph over the limitations of age.
This opportunity is brought to you by the Alzheimer’s Association event, The Longest Day®, along with the filmmakers of Age of Champions in hopes that you, your colleagues, friends and family will be able to use this resource as a positive and entertaining tool for promoting a healthy and active lifestyle.
After being inspired by the film, register to join the Alzheimer’s Association on June 21, 2013, for The Longest Day, as together we honor those living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. The Longest Day is about patience, strength and endurance – but it’s also about a challenge. On The Longest Day, do something you love – or try something new – to advance the cause. For people facing Alzheimer’s disease, this challenge is every day. For you, it’s just one.
Organize a team for this sunrise-to-sunset event and raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Learn more at www.alz.org/thelongestday.
"We want to thank you for the loving special care you took of our mother, Diane. It was truly mom's home and you all became part of our family. Everything was home for her....from the beautiful rooms, large sunny windows all around, good food made with love, fun and personal activities from people who really loved our mom. We would highly recommend your facility to anyone. The staff from the director, to the doctor, to the nurse, to the caregivers and the maintenance man were all extremely helpful, caring, loving and professional. There are not enough words to say how much we appreciate all of you. Your exceptional care, kindness, and love were beyond anything we could have imagined. You were part of our family, and we will miss you." - Gail Sommers and Deborah Guse
