I'm going Over the Edge for the Alzheimer’s Alliance. I will be doing this challenge in memory of my Mom, whose life was altered so much by this disease, and one of my best friends Dad, Bob Wilson, who also suffered from this devastating disease. All monies raised stay here in this area. I ask that you seriously consider a donation to this cause.

Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease that impacts the lives of over 17,000 families in our area. Alzheimer's Alliance Tri-State works diligently to provide education and support to improve the quality of life for those families. Our Place Day Respite Center provides a safe, stimulating social environment for those with Alzheimer's and other related dementias three days a week. Every $50 donated will cover the cost of a day of respite care for someone with Alzheimer’s or other related dementias at Our Place Day Respite Center and allow their caregiver a day of much needed rest and time to tend to their own health related needs both physically and emotionally.


If you can't make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook!  Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends who you think might be interested in contributing and include the link to my page!  If you are interested in going OVER THE EDGE on September 15th, we welcome you to join in our efforts.  Let me know and we will be happy to meet with you or your group.  Thanks so much for your generosity in sending me OVER THE EDGE and for your support of Alzheimer’s Alliance’s valuable services to our community.”

About Alzheimer's Alliance Tri-State Area

The future is so full of promise and hope for the Alzheimer's Alliance and Our Place Day Respite Center! We are excited and motivated to move forward with educating, caring, and connecting all who are affected by Alzheimer's and dementia.  We know that with support and resources we can enhance the lives of caregivers, family members, and ultimately those with a diagnosis. 

The Alliance serves over 17,000 people in its 22 county service area who are enduring the impact of Alzheimer’s Disease through support services, referrals and the Our Place Day Respite Center.  The Day Center offers a place for caregivers to bring their loved ones allowing the caregiver a day to rest while Our Place provides  socialization and cognitive stimulation of being in a safe, supportive, engaging environment in which they can interact with others having similar experiences while participating in enjoyable activities designed to match personal abilities and needs. Through supporting and improving the lives of caregivers, research shows that they are not only empowered to continue to care for their loved one, but it also extends their lives.  Each day of respite adds 23 days to a caregiver’s life.

 Alzheimer’s Disease can strike any family, not discriminating based on economics, social status, education or fame.  It is a heart breaking disease as caregivers watch their loved one slipping slowly away from them.  The Alliance supports these families and works to make this process less painful with support, encouragement and resources.

Please feel free to contact us for addtional information about how we can offer help to you or someone you know, Our Place Day Respite Center or how you can help be a part of our organization.
