…for generations to come.

Living.  Learning.  Leading.

Every 4 seconds a family learns they need to care for someone with a diagnosis of dementia, including Alzheimer’s. Diseases such as Parkinson’s, A.L.S., or Multiple Sclerosis, are more likely to occur with age, contributing to the 43.5 million family members who are serving as untrained caregivers to someone over the age of 50. The Morning Pointe Foundation believes that families, healthcare professionals, and researchers — those living, learning and leading — have the knowledge to master the aging process and advance the care of seniors for generations to come.
