Maplewood Senior Living’s Mill Hill Residence in West Yarmouth, MA hosted a ceremony yesterday to donate the proceeds of a recent silent auction to three Alzheimer’s organizations close to their core mission. The organizations that received the monetary gift include Alzheimer’s Family Support Center of Cape Cod, Alzheimer’s Association in East Harwich, MA and Hope Dementia & Alzheimer’s Services in Hyannis, MA. Rachel Greenfield, Executive Director of Maplewood Senior Living’s Mill Hill Residence. Each group received a check for $650.

“The Alzheimer’s diagnosis evokes uncertainty and fear,” said Rachel Greenfield. “The organizations that work to find solutions and offer support for those living with Alzheimer’s and to their families, are often under recognized for their incredible work. We are proud to support these local groups in their efforts to provide hope to those living with dementia and to their families.”

In January of this year, the Mill Hill Residence held their Annual Snowflake Ball and Silent Auction featuring donations from local businesses.  Maplewood’s executive team specifically chose to donate the proceeds from the auction to Massachusetts–based organizations with a focus on dementia and Alzheimer’s because of their shared passion in helping local families in need of support.

Maplewood Senior Living’s Mill Hill Residence bestowed the checks to each of the Alzheimer’s organizations.

Molly Perdue, Ph.D., Co-Founder and Executive Director of Alzheimer’s Family Support Center of Cape Cod in Brewster, MA accepted a check for the center. The Alzheimer’s Family Support Center is dedicated to providing resources and educational materials to individuals living with Alzheimer’s and their families. It also offers free memory screenings and frequently hosts support groups for caregivers, Alzheimer’s patients, and their friends, and relatives.

Pamela Schwabe, Development Officer of the Alzheimer’s Association in East Harwich, MA received a check on behalf of the organization, which is a part of the greater national Alzheimer’s Association. The Alzheimer’s Association is the largest private investor in innovative research related to Alzheimer’s and also provides resources that educate and promote brain health in order to reduce the risk of dementia related diseases.

Suzanne Faith, RN-Psych and Senior Director of Hope Dementia & Alzheimer’s Services in Hyannis, MA, was the third recipient of the donation. Hope Dementia & Alzheimer’s Services offer a wide variety of support services for both for those living with Alzheimer’s and their families, friends, and caregivers. Their specialized programs include a telephone helpline, educational materials and support groups, respite grants, memory screenings, professional conferences on dementia research, and much more.
