Hi this is Anthony Diaz. We all know that tomorrow is the anniversary of the tragic event known as 9-11 and the day America fell to her knees. We also are aware of the fact that at Rosa’s, even tragic events deserve to be acknowledge and also deserve goodness to happen on that day. Miracles can happen and we certainly enjoy being part of the hope that can make them happen.
On September 12, 2015, I will be presenting to the Southern Arizona Alzheimer Association in conjunction with Tucson’s Harmony Hospice a check towards to walk called Walk to End Alzheimer’s. I am very proud to be part of the team of Harmony Hospice whose primary mission is to provide excellent and compassionate hospice care while creating a community bond through the professional services of our medical staff and volunteers.
At Rosa’s we specialize in Alzheimer’s which is the most common form of dementia among older people and about 4.5 million Americans suffer from this condition, which usually begins after age 60. This is why it is so important to not only be a big part of this walk, but to bring recognition to this wonderful organization T (AFA).
AFA unites more than 2,300 member organizations from coast-to-coast that are dedicated to meeting the educational, social, emotional and practical needs of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related illnesses, and their caregivers and families. Under AFA’s umbrella, these organizations collaborate on education, resources, best practices and advocacy —all resulting in better care for people affected by the disease. Rosa’s and Harmony Hospice takes pride in being part of the Southern Arizona chapter.
We here at Rosa’s as well as Harmony Hospice plan to make September 9, 2015 a day to remember because there are some people that cannot remember due to Alzheimer’s.
