Connie’s Challenge

Her beloved husband, Bud, was slipping away. The fun-loving, brilliant man now diagnosed with Alzheimer’s was becoming helpless. Their three adult children were at odds with each other and Connie on how to care for him. The communication breakdown on top of the stress of providing care was overwhelming.

Connie needed help. A call to our 24/7 Helpline led to a session with one of our Care Counselors. Meeting separately with each family member, then bringing them together … the ALZGLA staff helped navigate complex family dynamics, intense emotions, and reestablish family unity. The experience led to improved communication between siblings, more support for Connie, and ultimately greater strength and confidence to cope with the emotional and economic challenges of their Alzheimer’s journey.

We were there to help. “I’m glad I made that first phone call,” Connie says. “Everyone caring for a loved one with dementia will need the advice and guidance we found through ALZGLA’s family support. I want to make sure that Alzheimer’s Greater Los Angeles is always here for families when they need help.”

The Challenge
Because she knows firsthand the difference Alzheimer’s Greater Los Angeles made in her family’s life and because her compassion for others is immense, Connie has pledged an astounding matching gift up to $250,000 to ensure local families have access to ALZGLA’s free family support programs and services.

She is challenging you to make a difference!

Every dollar stays right here in the Greater LA region, helping our families, friends, and neighbors when they need us most.

The Disney Family Fund

As a loving memorial tribute to Patricia Disney, her children (Susan Disney Lord, Abigail Disney, Roy Disney, and Timothy Disney) established the Disney Family Fund to benefit the Alzheimer’s Greater Los Angeles. The Fund supports programs and services targeting families from diverse communities across greater Los Angeles area. The Disney family recognizes that Alzheimer’s does not discriminate; therefore they are committed to ensuring that no one goes without access to essential programs, services, and resources. Regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, geography, age, or socio-economic status… the Disney Family Fund provides support, education, and connections when people impacted by Alzheimer’s or dementia need it most.

Toba & Earl Greinetz Fund

Toba and Earl’s relationship was straight out of a Hollywood script.  They met at Jewish Summer Camp… she was 12, he was 13… and married 7 years later, never dating anyone else.  Truly the loves of one another’s lives, the next 50 years blessed them with three children, grandchildren, an incredible social circle, success in business and philanthropy, and a strong commitment to their communities and causes. In 2001, their lives changed dramatically after Toba developed Alzheimer’s. The next 10 years brought them on a journey that thousands of local families face every day. They experienced the isolation, frustration, and exhaustion that goes hand in hand with caring for someone progressing through the loss of the memories they had built together. Initially Earl created the Toba Fund in honor of his beloved wife’s legacy… so that others would not have to face Alzheimer’s alone. Since 2007, it has raised over $500,000 providing 1:1 Care Counseling at no cost to anyone who needs information, education, and support from a master level social worker.  Although Toba died in January, 2011, Earl remained passionate about making a difference until his death on September 06, 2016.  Today Alzheimer’s Greater Los Angeles honors their love and legacy through the Toba & Earl Greinetz Fund.
