Lilacs & Greensleeves: Alzheimer’s Greater Los Angeles

alzgla-logo-alt

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

SAN DIMAS COMMUNITY HOSPITAL

It is our pleasure at Care4You, to have San Dimas Community Hospital as our Community Partner! Thank you to everyone at this fine hospital for your service to the community!!

sandimaslogo

“San Dimas Community Hospital (SDCH) is located on the east end of the San Gabriel Valley, one mile off the 210, 57, and 10 freeways, in the city of San Dimas, with a population of 35,000. San Dimas is a small, caring, cohesive community reaching from Puddingstone Lake in Bonelli Park on the south to the Foothills on the north. The hospital’s 13-acre campus consists of the 101-bed general acute care facility and two identical Medical Office Buildings. San Dimas Community Hospital draws the majority of its patients from its own town as well as the surrounding communities of Glendora, La Verne, Covina, West Covina, Azusa, Walnut, Diamond Bar, Pomona and Claremont. San Dimas Community Hospital is situated in a heavily penetrated managed care environment.
San Dimas Community Hospital opened its doors in 1971 as a physician-owned facility. At that time, the hospital was licensed for 99 beds. Patients and visitors often expressed their sense of the hospital’s “family” atmosphere. This was due not only to the efficient size of the facility, but more importantly because of the personalized care given by our physicians and employees, whether they are a nurse, housekeeper or a member of the dietary staff. In 2008, the hospital was sold to Prime Healthcare Services and operates as a 101-bed general acute care facility.”
