Alzheimer’s Association Fundraiser BBQ, Volunteering, & More!

August 23rd, 2019

We hosted our 5th annual Alzheimer’s Association Fundraiser BBQ on Tuesday, August 13. Each staff department pulled together a basket to raffle off, and our 2019 Queen Donna Gerber graciously chose the raffle winners for us.

Local businesses also donated items to be used as part of a silent auction. Many tenants, family members, and friends joined us for a night full of fun, delicious BBQ food, and fundraising for a great cause! In total, we raised $4,131 for the Alzheimer’s Association.”


Home Health Aid, Tamika, and Eagan Pointe Tenant, Jim K., were enjoying the beautiful summer sun on the community room balcony.


An agency that works with the homeless in Minneapolis reached out to Eagan Pointe for volunteers to roll socks. The tenants of Eagan Pointe took on the challenge and rolled over 1300 pairs of socks in less than 40 minutes!


Eagan Pointe was visited by 60 swing dancers ranging in age from 6th grade to college students. They took advantage of Eagan Pointe’s high ceilings to show off their tricks and dance moves. The tenants loved watching the almost lost art of swing dancing while reminiscing about the good old days when they used to “move like that.”

Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month

June 26th, 2018

Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month

Worldwide, more than 50 million people are living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. During Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness month in June, the Alzheimer’s Association encourages people around the world to learn about and spread awareness. This month, go purple and inspire action.

Alzheimer’s is a disease that attacks the brain. The most common form of dementia, Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of the aging process. The disease affects memory, thought process, and behavior, and is serious enough to interfere with daily life, progressively worsening over time. The sixth leading cause of death in the United States, Alzheimer’s has no cure.

Current Statistics

  • 5.7 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, including 94,000 Minnesotans aged 65 and older.
  • Every 65 seconds, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s.
  • One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia, killing more than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.
  • Deaths from Alzheimer’s disease increased 123% between 2000 and 2015.

Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month

The Minnesota-North Dakota Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association suggests these ways to learn more and get involved during Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month:

  • Spread awareness of the 10 Ways to Love Your Brain – it’s never too early or too late to develop healthy habits, and combining these habits, like regular cardiovascular exercise, a balanced, healthy diet, challenging your mind, and getting enough sleep, can help reduce risk of cognitive decline.
  • Share facts about Alzheimer’s.
  • Get inspired by powerful stories of people sharing their experiences with the disease.
  • Go Purple – wear the official color of Alzheimer’s awareness and turn your social media profiles purple as well.
  • Participate in The Longest Day event on June 21 in honor of those facing the disease. Select any activity that you love (or one loved by someone affected by Alzheimer’s), raise money to advance the cause, and share your story.
  • Attend events that raise awareness throughout the month of June.
