Planned Giving Quote – St John

My partner, Regina, and I arrived for our first appointment feeling overwhelmed and near despair which is not who we were as people before dementia hit.  Regina, who was one of the most loving, happy and fun persons I’d ever known, had been angry and confused for over a year when our primary physician referred us to MemoryCare. There we found compassion, a feeling of being understood and loved, a source of enlightenment and resources to guide us out of the tortuous maze.  We left feeling deep grief at the diagnosis of dementia, but also with strength and hope beginning to return as we continued the journey of life with dementia.  Every successive treatment session increased our ability to cope as we learned practical helps for communication, self-care and care for each other.  A thorough assessment led to medication changes which maximized Regina’s health potential. MemoryCare is unique in treating family and patient together as well as serving all who are in need, regardless of income.  The disease is so stressful that Caregiver health is often seriously compromised which, in turn, adversely effects the person with dementia. 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.
