225 associates, residents, friends and family registered as a part of the Judson team and collectively, is proud to have raised over $4,700 for the Alzheimer’s Association.
Prior to the walk, Judson teams across all three campuses participated in a spirit week to show their support and excitement for the walk.
Judson’s partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association and participation in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s embodies our mission of Bringing Community to Life. Judson is accredited by Comfort Matters, a person-centered health practice dedicated to improving the quality of care and the quality of life for those living with dementia. The first step in designing a care plan that is unique to each individual, is to understand the totality of each person.
Judson board member, The Very Rev. Tracey Lind, served as the honorary chair of this year’s walk. Tracey opened the ceremony by discussing her journey with early onset frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and encouraged the audience to continue their support of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Tracey’s ministry has evolved to include the spiritual insights and lessons she has gained from a life complicated by dementia. Since her diagnosis she has fully immersed herself in what life has to offer and what she has to give.
The Alzheimer’s Association’s mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is more than a walk. It calls on participants to unite in a movement to reclaim the future for millions.
We are proud of our partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association of Cleveland and look forward to further supporting the search for a cure to end Alzheimer’s disease.
