D ementia is a group of diseases unlike any other—it affects a person’s cognitive skills, memories, language, and even movement. It can be a heartbreaking and emotional journey for families who have to cope with a loved one’s steady decline. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, there is an estimated 5.4 million people dealing with Alzheimer’s disease in 2016. That number is expected to increase by 14% by 2025.
Alzheimer’s Texas and Sundance Memory Care exist to ease the burden of caregivers looking after their loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
People with dementia have special cognitive, social and physical needs, so Sundance is always looking for ways to expand the reach and breadth of their care and research. That’s why, in 2016, we have created The Music & Memories Gala and Benefit Concert to raise funds to help support Alzheimer’s Texas and the families they serve.
Your donation and participation can dramatically impact the lives of so many dealing with dementia in Central Texas. So, whether it’s by a simple donation, becoming an advertiser, a sponsor, or other helping hand, we invite you to be a part of this wonderful event that exists for a beautiful purpose.
