Today, CaringKind, the leading expert in Alzheimer’s and dementia caregiving, announces a new advocate for CaringKind: Miss World America 2020, Ms. Alissa Anderegg.
For over 40 years, CaringKind has provided care and support for Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers and the people in their care. Ms. Anderegg has experience as a caregiver – her grandmother had Alzheimer’s. In honor of her grandmother, Ms. Anderegg chose Alzheimer’s Disease as her charitable cause.
“'Beauty with a Purpose' is the heart and soul of Miss World America, so I chose CaringKind as a beneficiary for my advocacy efforts because it’s a natural fit,” said Ms. Anderegg. “I have seen the devastating impact that Alzheimer’s has not only on the person with the disease, but also on their family. CaringKind’s focus on caring for the caregiver, as well as the person with dementia, is the kind of holistic approach I believe in.”
Coronavirus has forced nonprofits that serve seniors to reinvent themselves. ‘We don’t know what we’re going to be on the other side of this whole thing’
In New York City, CaringKind, which is focused on Alzheimer’s and dementia caregiving, has had to cancel an annual gala that regularly raises over $1 millions, a little less than a quarter of the group’s annual budget. Other fundraisers, like athletic events, may also be cancelled.
