THE BEGINNING OF MEMORY CARE AMERICA AND YOUR LOVED ONE’S CARE Joining Your Journey As a financial advisor for nearly 40 decades, I know numbers have power, and some speak volumes. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, someone is diagnosed with dementia every 59 seconds. Every day, 10,000 people are turning 65, inching closer to possibly needing additional care. It became clear to me that this was a formula that needed attention, especially when I saw the kind of care my clientele and their families were receiving for dementia. A high-ranking Air Force official brought her family member to Memory Care America. Her loved one was Our Communities

younger, but because his dementia had progressed aggressively, this woman feared leaving him alone. Linda and this woman

I was appalled when I witnessed this care firsthand. Facilities would have patients packed in separate wings, drugged into sedation, and the relationships with the families of these clients was almost

just clicked, though Linda says she still can’t explain why to this day. At one point, the woman said to Linda, “I think God sent me to you. I’m not looking anymore.” Her life was stuck in a stalemate, but when she found Linda and Memory Care America, she was able to consider moving on. It was hard for this woman to leave her loved one’s care in our hands at first. She had been the one to support him, feed him, and make sure he was well. We would send her photos of him eating breakfast, participating at the facility’s various activities, or living his daily life, and Linda soon learned this woman was finally learning how to relax again. She got back into painting, took a vacation with her kids and grandchildren, and she became active in her church again. She continued her life knowing her loved one was living his own with the kind of care she would have liked to give him herself. At Memory Care America, we are there for some of the most challenging times you will face in your life, and handing over the care of a loved one to us can be one of the most difficult things to do. Your loved one’s care as they live through dementia is important, and we are honored that you trust us enough to join you on this harrowing journey. Our own journey began with 149 gracious investors, and it’s one that continues with your trust. — JimWalesa Do Not Keep Our Work a Secret! 1

to keep people with dementia moving and help their families find peace of mind. As our operations director, Linda Carrasco, always says, “It’s really about learning who your residents are and who your families are, but the main thing you have to do is join their journey.” We’ve had quite a number of journeys come through our facilities' doors, and each one can be difficult for families and their loved ones. Linda is at the forefront of most of these journeys, and she will often share stories with us. There’s one in particular that sticks out to me as the perfect example of why we are so devout in our level of care for families affected by dementia.
