“Our world desperately needs MemoryCare for every family dealing with dementia. Therefore, I donate as much as I can and hope that others will do the same so that this model of care can continue to grow and spread to all in need. Regina passed on now, but I am grateful to MemoryCare for as long as I live, and I committed to leave part of my remaining estate to continue that gratitude after I too have passed on.” Sharron K. St John, Former Caregiver

If you are 70 ½ years of age or older and have an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) you can make an immediate impact to MemoryCare through an IRA Charitable Rollover Gift, or Qualified Charitable Distribution. An IRS provision allows you to donate up to $100,000, that may be tax-free, from your IRA each year to a qualified charity, such as MemoryCare. If you are over 70 ½ and your 70th birthday is July 1, 2019, or later, you do not have to take withdrawals until you reach 72, but you may still do so, and MemoryCare is pleased to accept them.
Generally, when you take a distribution from your IRA it is treated as taxable income. If your distribution is made directly to a charity, it may not need to be included in your income. Therefore, you could avoid taxes and could save on Medicare costs.

Moving Betty to a nursing facility was the most difficult thing I have ever done. In the nursing facility, Betty was cared for 24 hours a day when it was hazardous to Betty and me to continue in home care.
Although the journey was not an easy one for us, the resources available at MemoryCare made it endurable. They helped me avoid many medical and emotional pitfalls. For this reason, I believe the people of Western North Carolina are fortunate to have the resources of MemoryCare available. To ensure that MemoryCare will be available to those who need it in the future, I have created an investment account that will further fund MemoryCare when I join my beautiful and loving wife in our heavenly home. I encourage anyone who has a spouse, relative or friend who has Alzheimer’s to join me in that effort. Any gift, small or large, will insure that MemoryCare is available to those who will need it in the future. They may never know your name or shake your hand, but they will bless you when the time comes for them to need MemoryCare. “
"A little song I like" (shared by Dale)
“Song Sung Blue
Me and you are subject to Blues now and then
When you take the blues and make a song, you sing them out again
Song sung blue weeping like a willow
Song sung blue sleeping on my pillow
Funny thing but you can sing with a cry in your voice
And before long you are feeling better, you got no choice”
