The National Alzheimer’s Association held its “The Longest Day” event on June 21st, 2017, and Primrose of Sioux Falls, SD was proud to partner with them to bring awareness to Alzheimer’s Disease.

Primrose communities across the country wore t-shirts bearing the logo “Together we can create lasting memories” and many pictures were displayed on face book. It was great to see so many participate.

The Sioux Falls Primrose hosted a speaker, Sue Blair Brown, who wrote and Illustrated a book called “Making & Keeping Memories.” It was written to help family and friends understand the effects of Alzheimer’s on their loved ones. When one person in a family is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s it truly affects everyone in the family. We hope with further education about Alzheimer’s it can lead to a better life for the ones who are affected.

We hope this day was a great way to honor those with Alzheimer’s and we are thankful for the continued support of our Primrose communities and the employees who give of their time to assist when needed.
