Inspiring young people to educate and get involved, bringing us closer
to making Alzheimer’s and dementia just a memory
Care To Remember was created by brother and sister Jonathan and Jenna Reiner. As high school students in South Florida, Jonathan and Jenna have grown up always aware of Alzheimer’s and the devastating affects it has on a family. Three of their relatives have suffered and passed away from this horrible disease. Though Jonathan and Jenna never met them, they have heard stories of how their loved ones deteriorated as well as how family members evolved into caregivers and the impact it had on them. Having Alzheimer’s is a terrifying experience for those affected, especially during the early stages as they are painfully aware of what is happening to them. But Alzheimer’s is equally frightening to family and friends who have no choice but to watch their loved ones succumb to this deadly disease.
After a successful first year, Jonathan and Jenna have joined forces with a close friend, Emily Bernstein, in a stronger effort to raise awareness within the young community. Together, they want to play their part in wiping out Alzheimer’s. And they feel that the time to get involved is now, when they are young. There is no reason to wait until you’re too old to worry about Alzheimer’s. By starting now, Jonathan, Jenna, and Emily hope to educate, inspire and empower young people to embrace Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia and get involved. It is their hope that one day, Alzheimer's and Dementia will be forgotten and loved ones can live their lives in good health, independence, and dignity.
Care To Remember supports research and raises awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The goal is to educate young people about this disease and how it affects its victims and their families. Alzheimer’s and dementia create long-term impairments affecting the person’s behavior and personality, contributes to enduring psychological stress for loved ones, deprives the person of their memory, and eventually leaves the person completely dependent on family/caregivers. Support is necessary to fund more research towards finding a cure. Through education and awareness, Care To Remember hopes to inspire young people to get involved.
