Each year, thousands of families, in America and around the world are affected by the scourge of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.
Our family is no exception. Ten years ago, Joie Harris, my mother in law and Allie's grandmother, was diagnosed. She passed away early in 2012. In between we were confronted with a situation that required us to learn new caregiving skills, tested our emotions, and that brought us into contact with some of the most extraordinary and inspiring caregiving people and organizations we could have imagined.
Joie was at home for the majority of her illness. During that time we saw how demanding caregiving could be; how it impacted everyone around her and every aspect of life. We learned how much was required to care for her. It took information. And people. And it took lots of supplies.
Though her smile remained almost ever-present, as we experienced Joie's mental decline, Allie and I thought long and hard about how we could honor her and help others who were in our position. That's how ALZcarestore was born. By helping caregivers get the information and home healthcare supplies they need -- quickly, easily, and at a great value -- and, donating proceeds to support Alzheimer's research and care, we think everybody wins.
We're partnering with some of the leading organizations in Alzheimer's and dementia caregiving, drug discovery, home health care supplies, and many of those leading the fight to find treatments and cures for these now incurable conditions.
It's hard work -- but if you are reading this, you are probably already involved in providing care for someone. So you know.
We appreciate your business, and we always want to hear how we can do better. Please let us know.
