When the Grave Is in Grave Danger

easter cross web“Nothing binds a people to their leader like a common enemy. Voters don't change governments during war.” — Harvey Fierstein. Resurrection Day, commonly called “Easter,” is nigh.

That puts tremendous pressure on us living in the Lehigh Valley community to help improve the lives of people living with diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, Early Onset Dementia, Lewy Body Dementia, Vascular Dementia, etc. Surely there are opportunities for people to move to memory care accommodations in the Lehigh Valley, but that is not the solution for the large majority of people living with these diseases.
