“Like” us on Facebook- Donations to Alzheimer’s Australia

Posted on: September 20th, 2016 by Eric Hiam in Aged Care Financial Planning

It is a sad fact that around 45% of our clients suffer from some form of dementia & it has been determined worldwide in 2010, that 36 million people suffer from some form of dementia , & it is estimated that by 2030 that figure will rise to around 70 million people, & by 2050, 115 million people.

Dementia is an insidious illness, that robs people of their personality, their intelligence, & steals them from their family bit by bit. I saw my own (once intelligent) mother become a shell of her former self, yet others seem unaffected. Anyone who has a relative or friend who suffers from dementia knows only too well how dementia changes the person, & impacts everyone around them.

We have decided to donate money to Alzheimer’s Australia, to help fund research, in the hope that one day we may find a cure to this condition, & if not a cure, then at least medication to slow down the progression of dementia.

We are asking our clients to “like us” on Facebook, to help spread this message further, & for every “like” we receive on our Facebook page, we will be making a donation to Alzheimer’s Australia to go towards important research. If you would like to help, please go to our new Facebook page Balance Aged Care Specialists.

Thank you in anticipation of your assistance
