Masonicare sponsors Alzheimer's Association's 1st Annual "Brain Ball"
The Connecticut Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association held its first Annual "Brain Ball – Where Science Meets Compassion" at the Connecticut Science Center on Saturday, March 7. Masonicare was proud to be the presenting sponsor
Kelly Papa, Masonicare's Corporate Director of Learning, welcomed attendees with this message from Masonicare: "The mission of Masonicare is to enhance quality of life through an exceptional continuum of person-centered care. At Masonicare, we are committed to compassionate care, constant learning and advocating for people affected by Alzheimer's disease. It is one of my greatest joys to get to work alongside some of the most loving care partners I have ever met … care partners who believe in supporting people affected by Alzheimer's throughout their journey, by building relationships, listening with their eyes and hearts and by valuing personal life stories. Masonicare is proud to partner with the Alzheimer's Association to continue to care, to learn and to advocate until there is an end of Alzheimer's disease."
The Brain Ball will become an annual event as a fundraiser in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. At this year's event, Dr. Stephen Strittmatter of Yale University School of Medicine, was awarded the Alzheimer's Association's Zenith Fellows Award to continue his cutting edge research into the cause of Alzheimer's.
In attendance were members of Masonicare's Leadership and Dementia Cultural Alignment Committee. As presenting sponsor, Masonicare highlighted its relationship with the Alzheimer's Association and our shared commitment to improve the lives of people affected by dementia. The funds raised through the event and its silent auction will be directed towards research and critical support services for individuals, families and caregivers who face the daily challenges of this disease.
