Let’s Walk Together to End Alzheimer’s


I can’t remember his name, but I will never forget his face. It was 1990 and I was working at a nonprofit in New York. I had not even started law school yet. A client told me about his wife’s diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer’s. I will never forget the look on his face – a now all too familiar look of fear, grief, weariness, confusion, and devastation. Recently retired, and celebrating over thirty years of marriage, all their dreams had been shattered. He was now her full-time caregiver, and she was declining rapidly. As an elder law attorney, far too often, I see the same look on the faces of the families we serve, and I am often reminded of the man who first introduced me to the reality of Alzheimer’s.

There is hope that one day we can all live in a world without Alzheimer’s. Last year, the Alzheimer’s Association, the world’s largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s, donated a record breaking $100 million to dementia research. Nearly every week, we learn about new scientific breakthroughs in the field of Alzheimer’s and dementia, thanks in large part to the countless contributions of businesses, individuals and volunteers that support the Alzheimer’s Association.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 6.9 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. By 2050, this number is projected to rise to nearly 13 million. We are all at risk and we are all impacted by the economic costs of this disease.

To help combat the epidemic of Alzheimer’s and dementia, and to honor the members of our community who are living and fighting on the front lines of this devastating disease, the McIntosh Law Firm is once again participating in the 2024 Walk to End Alzheimer’s – Iredell Co. & Lake Norman on Saturday morning, September 21, 2024, at Liberty Park in downtown Mooresville.
