The Glenner Memory Care Centers of San Diego will be pulling out the red carpet and cutting up a rug Saturday evening, October 13, 2012, as we celebrate 30 years of helping families in San Diego County.
Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. today; dementia hits most after the age of 65. As baby boomers age, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease, as well as other types of dementia, impact more and more families. Right here in San Diego, there are more than 90,000 individuals with AD and more are diagnosed every 90 seconds. Glenner adult day care and counseling services don't just help San Diego families keep loved ones at home; they also help save millions in institutional care tax dollars.
The Glenner Anniversary Gala features great auction items, delicious dishes, a fantastic band and wonderful venue. Dress is black tie optional; dancing shoes are suggested.
All proceeds from the Gala go to Glenner adult day programs in South Bay, Hillcrest and Encinitas in order to continue meeting the growing need for safe, secure and social adult day programs and support services for families caring for a loved one with dementia.
