Toronto, ON (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
Dementia/Alzheimer’s has plagued many of our senior population. Family members are left with little choices to care for their loved ones who are suffering from this disease.
The numbers are quickly increasing, and no new medications have been developed to fight this disease. What can we do to help those suffering with dementia? Is a government run nursing home the only hope for them? The Memory Loss Foundation was conceived to offer underprivileged seniors who suffer from dementia the opportunity to be part of specialized programs which utilize the Montessori Methods for Dementia™. This is a method proven to help engage those with dementia in meaningful, purposeful activities and offer them a calmer increased quality of life.
The foundation has created many resources to help the individual, supportive family, as well as supporting caregivers in nursing facilities. May it be an individual or a nursing home, it’s happened all too many time that an underprivileged person could not benefit from the resources available simply because they cannot afford it on a fixed income.
It is now our mission to grow a foundation that is involved with directly helping those who suffer with dementia receive quality care, appropriate day centre settings and escorted transportation as well as family support.
The Memory Loss Foundation is comprised of a board and advisory board made up of industry professionals, senior advocates, business professionals, and just people who care. Tuesday, July 9th 2013 will mark the official launch of the charity as it host an invite-only exclusive evening of wine, hors d'oeuvres, entertainment and inspirational speakers.
