On June 21, Team Vesta will continue the fight to help end Alzheimer’s. Annually, on the “Longest Day of the Year, June 21,” teams all around the world focus their energy on raising funds and awareness to help fund the cure for Alzheimer’s and also programming to support families suffering from the disease. As Elder Care Consultants, on a daily basis, we see the devastation that this disease causes families, and we also know what a profound impact Alzheimer’s Disease has on the world population. Now, more than ever, there is hope on the horizon, and we will likely see the first survivor in our lifetime. There is hope,  and YOU can help us #ENDALZ!
