Contributing to Others
More than five million people in the United States have Alzheimer’s Disease or another form of dementia, including many of our residents. We are committed to the fight to end Alzheimer’s and have had a long-standing relationship with the Alzheimer’s Association in their efforts to fight to end the disease while enhancing care for those who live with it.
As part of our relationship with the Alzheimer’s Association, we made history in both 2014 and 2015. Our associates, residents, and business partners across the country rallied to this cause, leading and participating in a variety of fundraising activities, including the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s®.
Because of these efforts by our associates, residents, and business partners, Brookdale’s participation in the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s events nationwide generated more than $2 million in 2015. This was the second year in a row the company raised an unprecedented figure.
In 2014, Brookdale became the first corporate team to generate $1 million in a single calendar year, earning diamond National Team status for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, the world’s largest event to generate awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
