“Our family was not prepared for Mark’s diagnosis, at the age of 54, of Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease and the forthcoming medical, social and financial challenges it brings. We are so blessed to have found Eskaton Adult Day Health Center where we know Mark is, without doubt, valued, encouraged and cared for. The generous help from Eskaton Foundation allows Mark to be part of this incredible place of respect and friendship. While he is there, our family is encouraged and supported and able to continue on with our work and school obligations. The center’s care for their clients impacts the whole family and the community at large. We are so grateful.” – Mark’s wife

Did you see the movie Still Alice? Early onset Alzheimer’s Disease affects an estimated 200,000 Americans. This could be your husband, father or son. How would you afford care if your loved one was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease?

#EskatonFoundation is helping vulnerable seniors like Mark who cannot afford all the care they need through its Adult Day Health Scholarship Program. You too can help by making a #GivingTuesday donation.
