For the month of April The Posh Mommy will be donating a portion of our proceeds to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America. Through the Alzheimer's Foundation of America's thriving mission they are uniting more than 1,900 member organizations from coast-to-coast who are dedicated to meet the needs of those affected by the Alzheimer's disease. They remain focused and passionate about, "Caring for the Nation...One Person at a Time."
The mission of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) is "to provide optimal care and services to individuals confronting dementia, and to their caregivers and families-through member organizations dedicated to improving quality of life."
The Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) was founded by a consortium of organizations to fill the gap that existed on a national level to assure quality of care and excellence in service to individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses, and to their caregivers and families.
AFA believes that by raising awareness of the disease and educating healthcare professionals and the public at large, they will:
-Help remove the fear and denial surrounding Alzheimer’s disease and related illnesses
-Lead to early detection and proper treatment
-Prompt greater utilization of community resources
-Ultimately improve quality of life
