Longest Day 4New Outlook Homecare was honored to be a co-sponsor of Needham Goes Purple‘s lemonade stands, a local campaign in association with The Longest Day to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. On June 10th, 14 lemonade stands were set up throughout Needham with the goal of raising awareness and donations in support of Alzheimer’s research. It was a 90+ degree day – a perfect day for lemonade. Thank you to Ed Shems for designing the wonderful lemonade cups on behalf of New Outlook Homecare.

Thanks to the co-sponsors, local restaurants and a huge push by organizer, Suzanne Lissy, over $7,000 was collected with additional funds still coming in. If you missed the lemonade stands on June 10th, there are still opportunities to make a contribution. Visit www.needhamgoespurple.org for additional details or consider making a donation directly to the Alzheimer’s Association.

ALZ2017

On Sunday, September 24, 2017, New Outlook Homecare will once again participate in the Greater Boston’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Our team will join close to 5,000 people walking either 1.5 or 3.5 miles toward a common goal – to raise awareness and funds for research to end Alzheimer’s disease.  According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s and last year, 15.9 million caregivers provided care for someone with the disease. It is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States and one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia.

We are looking for team members to join us on September 24th. If you are interested in joining Team New Outlook Homecare, please visit http://act.alz.org/site/TR?team_id=391271&fr_id=10472&pg=team to register. There are no fees to walk and there is no fundraising obligation.  Each team member will get an awesome team shirt and flower.

If you are unable to walk, but still want to contribute, consider making a donation or volunteer on walk day.  We look forward to seeing you on September 24th.  For more information, contact Marcy.

On Sunday, September 25, 2016, New Outlook Homecare participated in Greater Boston’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Our team of nearly twenty participants joined close to 5,000 people walking either 1.5 or 3.5 miles toward a common goal – to raise awareness and funds for research to end Alzheimer’s disease.  According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s and last year, 15.9 million caregivers provided care for someone with the disease. It is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States and one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia.

September 25th was a brisk, beautiful, sunny day. With our lime green t-shirts, Team New Outlook Homecare was all smiles as the walk began. Listening to speeches by radio personalities, celebrities and Mayor Marty Walsh, the Walk officially began just after 10:00 a.m. “Let’s go. This is so fun,” said five-year old Seth as we headed under the purple archway.

It was so nice to see supporters holding various colored flowers. Blue represented someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Purple was for someone who has lost a loved one to the disease. Yellow represented someone who is currently supporting or caring for someone with Alzheimer’s and Orange was for everyone who supports the cause and vision of a world without Alzheimer’s. The organization provided nourishment, water and support the entire route.

New Outlook Homecare was proud to participate in such a meaningful way and we thank all of those that participated in the Walk. Donations are still being collected. If you’d like more information or wish to donate, please visit our team’s page or visit the Alzheimer’s Association website: http://www.alz.org. We hope you can join us next year.
