October 10th will find the attorneys and staff of Rebecca W. Geyer and Associates on the move at the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The world’s largest event to raise awareness and funding for Alzheimer’s care, support and research, the Walk is held annually in more than 600 communities across the nation.
Over the past sixteen years, as they’ve assisted clients with their estate planning and elder law needs, the Geyer Law attorneys and staff have come to appreciate the overwhelming challenges faced by Alzheimer’s patients and their families. A natural offshoot of the Geyer team’s empathetic and compassionate approach to elder law is their support of the Alzheimer’s Association through participation in the Walk.
“The Walk to End Alzheimer’s unites the entire community,” the Association explains. That includes family, friends, co-workers, social and religious groups and more, in “a display of combined strength and dedication in the fight against this devastating disease.”
As part of their work as a full service estate planning and elder law firm in central Indiana, Rebecca Geyer, Corinna Smith and Kimberly Lewis have helped many family members of those afflicted with Alzheimer’s deal with guardianship, advanced directives, and end-of-life issues. More than ever, they are committed not only to the advancement of research to eliminate Alzheimer’s, but to enhancing the care and support of all affected by this terrible disease.
Rain or shine, the Walk will begin at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on the morning of October 10th. Thousands will participate as volunteers or walkers. All registered walkers will receive a Promise Garden flower:
- Blue flowers represent those with Alzheimer’s or dementia
- Purple is for someone who has lost a loved one to the disease
- Yellow represents someone currently supporting or caring for someone with Alzheimer’s
- Orange is for everyone who supports the cause
On October 10th, watch for Rebecca Geyer, Corinna, Kimberly Lewis, and Maria St. Clair as they walk because they envision a world without Alzheimer’s!
