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.”
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.
