Alzheimers Disease is relentless. It charts a steady path and takes with it language, functioning skills, and independence. But it doesn’t take away spirit, and Frances continues to show us this every day. While she remains the same vibrant, creative and bright spirit that she has always been there is no doubt that the disease is progressing. She now needs assistance dressing and can no longer write her name. She is unsteady on her feet, jumbles and forgets words, and needs help with meals and transactions. 

Three years ago we came to you for your help to make that year after diagnosis the best year ever.  And through the support and love of so many amazing friends and family, the Smersh's did just that.

Now, as time and the disease have progressed, Frances's need for regular and ongoing help have as well.  Frances needs a companion to help with everyday tasks and John would really benefit from the support of a couple of meals delivered each week.  

If you are able and willing to provide TIME by way of bringing meals or spending a shift with Frances, please  contact Natalie via email at 

If you would instead like to provide financial help for them to hire the assistance they need, please consider a donation.  

CAREGIVER, 12 hrs/week:  $180
MEALS 2 per week: $80

We hope to cover these costs for a period of one year at this time.  Any amount you can give or time you can spend is deeply appreciated! 

With love and gratitude.
