Care4You is honored to have EZ Living and Swing N Country as our Community Partners! Katie and John, what a testimony you both are in your endeavor to reach out to the public, to assist when needed and to touch lives with your love of the dance!

“EZ Living is the private practice of Katie Gundersen, MS, OTR/L, Occupational Therapist. And Swing N Country is the dance teaching business operated by Katie and her husband, John Watson. These two businesses often go hand in hand by helping local citizens in and near Monrovia maintain their independence and zest for living. Katie, and her husband John, met while on a competition Country dance team. Soon after they married, they began teaching dance together under the name of Swing N Country.

Aside from their group classes held at the Monrovia Community Center, they also offer private lessons in their home studio. They teach American Social Ballroom dances (Fox Trot, Waltz, Rumba, Cha Cha, Night Club Two Step, both East and West Coast Swing.) And they still love to teach Country Two Step and the old tried and true Country Line Dances. They work with engaged couples on their ‘first dance,’ and have often worked with ‘father/daughter’ as well as the entire bridal party.

They know because of Katie’s Occupational Therapy background, they have been successful teaching many people who were ready to ‘give up’ when they struggled trying to learn to dance. One of their 90 year young students says, “If it wasn’t for dance, I’d be gone by now.”

So check out their website at Swing N Country Monrovia here>

Contact them at 626 359-1055. Or send them a message at Katie@johnnkatiedance.com.

These heroes – our fathers, mothers, spouses, and friends – may be eligible for a unique benefit through the VA called “Pension with Aid and Attendance.” This benefit may provide reimbursement funding of up to $25,440 a year to help cover medical expenses, including homecare services. Homecare helps keep loved ones safe and comfortable at home.”

Through our partnership with Veterans Care Coordination, we are able to assist qualifying veterans and their spouses to apply for and obtain the Aid and Attendance Benefit through the Department of Veterans Affairs. What makes this partnership unique is the fact that Veterans Care Coordination can offer financial assistance to clients that cannot afford to pay for the up-front, out of pocket expense of homecare through their Veterans Appreciation Program. Who’s Eligible?

 Veteran, or surviving spouse of a veteran, who served 90 consecutive days of active duty with at least 1 day during a wartime period …(other war eligibility may be required depending on when you served)

Care4You is honored to have Alzheimer’s Greater Los Angeles as our Community Partner! Thank you so very much for your dedicated service to our community!!

Please enjoy reading a letter from their President & CEO, Susan M. Galeas, MSW, MPH

Helping local families for 35 years… facing it together

“In January, our board chose to focus 100% of our 35-year-old nonprofit’s efforts to help local families, and keep 100% of every penny in the communities we serve.

The cost of this disease is bankrupting local individuals financially, emotionally, and physically, and the money you donate or raise by participating in our events like Walk4ALZ allows us to help at no cost. We are also raising money to support innovative, ground-breaking research here in the Greater LA area. Our change lets us commit 20% of Walk4ALZ proceeds directly to research.

Additionally, we continue to advocate on behalf of increased funding for research and resources for caregivers locally, statewide, and federally… for 35 years we’ve been on the ground making a difference for people and the cause. Today our commitment to Greater Los Angeles remains stronger than ever and we hope your commitment to us with our new name and new look remains strong as well.

Let’s face it… a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s is devastating. So until there’s a prevention, treatment, or cure… let’s face it TOGETHER.

Today…we’re launching a campaign to raise $500,000 by 12/31/16 for local care and support. check out our website to see how your gift is helping us lift hearts and build community…together.”

TOGETHER WE CAN…

…help more people

…bring hope to caregivers and families

…raise awareness and change perceptions

…create dementia friendly communities

…one day prevent, treat, or cure the disease

…do more… be more… on behalf of those affected
