 Life Force Walks to End Alzheimer's Fundraiser

Life Force has specialized in providing live-in home health aides since 1989. Over the past 27 years we have seen the effects that Alzheimer's disease has had on many of our clients and their supportive family members. We personally have serviced hundreds who have battled Alzheimer's and join in the effort to provide support to combat this detrimental disease. More than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050.

(2) Support ongoing research to find a cure.
