Senior Helpers joins Alzheimers Early Detection Alliance

Senior Helpers, the nation’s fastest growing provider of in-home care for seniors, announced today their participation in the Alzheimer’s Association Alzheimer’s Early Detection Alliance (AEDA). Senior Helpers has become a “Champion” with the AEDA and will work to spread the word about the warning signs of Alzheimer’s.

The AEDA is an Alzheimer’s Association national outreach campaign focusing on the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s disease.

The goal is to raise awareness of the disease’s warning signs and for organizations to turn to the Alzheimer’s Association as the center for help and hope. The AEDA has developed an online toolkit containing educational information for participating organizations’ use in their promotional efforts that includes posters, brochures, television and radio advertisements, logos, widgets and more.

By becoming an AEDA “Champion,” Senior Helpers has agreed to disseminate educational information to their franchise owners and clients through various on-line activation opportunities provided by the Alzheimer’s Association. This includes placing the AEDA logo on their website, distributing the information on the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s and more.

“Joining the AEDA was an easy decision for us at Senior Helpers because of our commitment to educating and helping the senior community,” said Linda Pirog, owner of Senior Helpers in Peachtree City. “We are glad to be in a position to aid the AEDA in its efforts to spread the word on the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s. This is important to the senior community and their loved ones in order to combat this devastating disease. We look forward to working with our clients and community to help the approximately 5.3 million Americans currently living with Alzheimer’s.”
