Bloomington, Indiana (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Legacy Keepers, the nationwide legacy and family history preservation service, and the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA), a national nonprofit organization that provides optimal care and services to individuals with dementia, their caregivers and families, have teamed up to help families capture the memories of loved ones in a keepsake book or high-definition video. The special “AFA Forever” line is available to everyone, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the foundation.
Leaving behind a legacy has become increasingly important over the years. With an estimated 5.1 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease, passing down family traditions, precious memories and celebrating one’s history is becoming a new custom and is far more cherished. The impact of one’s legacy cannot be measured, but capturing and preserving it will allow it to live on forever.
“As a nonprofit organization, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America is dedicated to providing families with services that meet their emotional as well as practical needs,” says President and Founding CEO Eric J. Hall. “We understand how important it is for families to reflect on the lives of their loved ones, especially as Alzheimer’s disease progresses. We are pleased to present them with this opportunity through Legacy Keepers to pay tribute to their loved ones in a special way.”
Legacy Keepers utilizes their national network of personal historians, who will interview the client in a way that is the most comfortable for them. If desired, a customer can even have an in-person interview done in the comfort of their own home. Immediately following the interview, Legacy Keepers’ skilled creative team of writers, editors and designers ensure that the end result is something clients and their families will cherish for years to come.
“The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America is an outstanding organization that strives to help individuals during a challenging time,” says Senior Vice President of Marketing for Legacy Keepers, Keith Ogorek. “We are very excited to be collaborating with them.”
The AFA Forever line is now available on the Legacy Keepers website at http://www.legacykeepers.com/Services/AFAForeverCompare/ and the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s online store at http://www.alzfdn.org/AFAStore/estore.html.
