Caregiver’s Count!

With 5 walks, 117 teams, 2821 walkers, we raised over $180,000 for Alzheimer’s Caregivers.  Too often, caregivers are overlooked when we talk about Alzheimer’s disease.  More than 30% of caregivers pass away before the patient due to the stress of caregiving.  They spend countless hours caring for their loved one and need support to help deal with this devastating disease. 

More than 60% of Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers rate the emotional stress of caregiving as high or very high; more than 1/3 reported symptoms of depression.  Due to the physical and emotional toll of caregivers, Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers had $9.3 billion in additional health care costs of their own in 2013. 

The Walks are the backbone of this organization.  They help generate revenue for programs and services like:

  • Educational Programs

  • Family caregiver services

  • After hours caregiver phone

  • Monthly newsletter

  • Lending Library

  • File of Life Program

  • General operating expenses

81% of our income is spent on programs and services for Arkansas Families!

Walks are a place where people just have fun.  They laugh with others and laughing has been shown to relieve stress.  Whether you Walk along or join friends, family or co-workers and walk as a team, please know that YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!  Many walk to honor or remember a colleague, friend or loved one affected by Alzheimer’s or one of the related dementias.

If you have never participated in one of our Walks, make it your goal to attend one in 2015.  It is a great day of fun and one that you will remember for years to come.

We have already started planning the 2015 Alzheimer’s Walks!  Walks need people and we need you!  For ways you can help your Arkansas friends and neighbors please contact Barbara Jensen at 501-224-0021 or
