To show its support, Hallmark Healthcare of Carlinville is joining individuals
and organizations around the world in holding activities to raise awareness of
Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. The skilled nursing facility, in
Carlinville, is “going purple,”
the official color of Alzheimer's awareness,
to educate people about this condition and raise funds to help those with the
Alzheimer's is the most common cause of dementia - a general term for memory loss
and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life.
Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60% to 80% of dementia cases.
“Hallmark Healthcare of Carlinville cares for many people in the community with
memory conditions, including dementia and Alzheimer's,” said its administrator and
Suzi Robbins. “We realize how important it is for these patients to be nurtured and
get specialized care in a compassionate environment. We also want to do our part in
helping to accelerate critical research and find a cure.”
To enable that treatment, the facility has a dedicated, secure unit with 45 beds,
where residents with Alzheimer's disease and other memory conditions are cared for.
To raise awareness during Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month, Hallmark Healthcare
of Carlinville will “go purple” by participating in the Walk to
End Alzheimer's. The
facility has been an event sponsor for the past three years. Events like these raise
money to help find a cure for this disease.
