SAM Capital Campaign: Memory Matters: Because Memory is What Makes Us
St. Anne’s Mead opened a state-of-the-art memory care home in 2018! We’ve raised more than 85% of our goal for the memory care home, and your dedicated gift can help us close this campaign! Our Memory Care Home addresses a critical need for memory care, as Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, is the 5th leading cause of death for adults age 65 and over. Moreover, the number of seniors living Alzheimer’s disease is expected to nearly triple from 5 million to nearly 14 million by 2050.
The average age of an assisted living resident at St. Anne’s Mead is 92.7. As we live longer, we may also outlive our savings and investments. Your gift to the Angel Fund helps our residents when they need it most – in times of economic hardship. This hardship often happens at the end-of-life, when having to move creates undue stress and even trauma. The Angel Fund helps residents stay where they know they are cared for. The fund is dedicated to basic needs including rent, food, hygiene and clothing.
