Always Best Care Senior Services Raises More Than $50,000 to Fight Alzheimer’s Disease
Roseville, CA (March 14, 2013)
Always Best Care Senior Services announced at its International Conference in Las Vegas last month that its franchisees had raised more than $53,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association by participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s® in various locations.
“Our franchisees stepped up and formed 56 teams across the country, and recruited 365 volunteers to help us fight this dreaded disease,” said Michael Newman, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Always Best Care. “The funds raised will support Alzheimer’s Association care, support and research programs,”
Founded in 1996, Always Best Care is one of the fastest growing senior care franchise systems in the USA and Canada. The company delivers a combination of non-medical in-home care, assisted living referral and placement assistance and skilled home health care through an international network of more than 180 independently owned and operated franchised territories.
Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, and the only cause of death among the top 10 in America without a way to prevent it, cure it or even slow its progression. Hope for families is on the horizon and the Association continues to fund innovative research. Currently, available treatments address symptoms and may improve quality of life for those with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers for a short period of time.
More than 5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease and that number is nearly expected to reach more than 13 million by mid-century.
The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the national largest even to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions.

Always Best Care supports the Alzheimer’s Association in a variety of ways, and has sponsored educational webinars on the Early Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s and the Role of Exercise in Delaying the onset of Alzheimer’s.
