Bluebird Homecare joined the Alzheimer’s Association as a sponsor for the Atlanta 2016 Walk to End Alzheimer’s, which will take place on September 24 at the Kennesaw State University Sports and Entertainment Park.
“All of us at Bluebird Homecare work every day to assist and support individuals and families dealing with the challenges of Alzheimer's, so I am especially proud that our company can lend its financial support to the critical work that the Alzheimer's Association is doing to help raise awareness and find a cure for this terrible disease," said Stuart Brunson, Chairman & CEO of Bluebird Homecare, Inc. "I encourage everyone to join Bluebird Homecare and the Alzheimer's Association in shining a light on this important cause."
The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research, and features a 5K walk. In addition to the walk, participants can learn about Alzheimer’s disease and how to get involved. Alzheimer’s disease is the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death, and more than 5 million people in the United States live with the disease.
"We are so excited to have Bluebird Homecare as a new sponsor for our Atlanta Walk to End Alzheimer's,” said Leslie Gregory, CEO and President of Alzheimer's Association, Georgia Chapter. "Without amazing companies like Bluebird Homecare and their commitment to the walk, we simply cannot fight this disease and one day put an end to it.”
Bluebird Homecare provides in-home care, and offers services including Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, diabetes, and developmental disabilities care. Additionally, they offer companionship, meal preparation, housekeeping and transportation.
Founded in 2015, Bluebird Homecare currently has locations in Atlanta, Louisville, St. Louis and Birmingham. The company plans to expand to Lexington, Ky., Huntsville, Ala., Cincinnati and Indianapolis in the next 12 months.
