The Anaheim Walk to End Alzheimer’s was on November 14, 2015. Cerna’s CEO Nick Payzant participated in the Alzheimer’s walk along with Marc Friedman Cerna’s Senior Vice President – joined by Cerna’s Catalina Elwell, Laila Shanedling, family and friends. The day was filled with hope as people walked for a cure – and in remembrance of loved ones who will never see a cure.
The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.

Caring for a person with a cognitive impairment or traumatic brain injury can be counter intuitive. Innately, the response is to guard, protect and keep him or her secure at home. After decades, a family learned living in their injured family member’s world was the only way for them all to live – and flourish, thanks to a top San Diego neurologist and Cerna Home Care.
Florence Henderson was the guest speaker at last month’s special Annual Visionary Women Caregiver luncheon hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association of Orange County. The Alzheimer’s Association being the visionaries they are, established an award to honor women dementia caregivers – paid and unpaid as well as professionals and non-professionals.
June is Alzheimer’s Awareness month.
