Lofland Park Center, a 110-bed Genesis HealthCare skilled nursing center located at 715 King Street in Seaford, Delaware, announced today that last year it joined the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s®  and raised more than $11,000 to fund Alzheimer's Association care, support and research programs.  Genesis HealthCare raised $275,000 company-wide as a Silver National Team.

Yesterday, Lofland Park Center was presented with a trophy by Claire Day, Vice President Constituent Services, Alzheimer’s Association Delaware Valley Chapter.  The trophy presentation and ceremony honored the center’s 2013 commitment to raising funds for this important cause.  Lofland Park Center raised the most funds of any of the more than 400 Genesis HealthCare centers nationwide.

Alzheimer’s disease is a growing epidemic and the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. As baby boomers age, the number of individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease will rapidly escalate. “The dedication of Lofland Park Center will help the Alzheimer’s Association continue to move forward with its vision of a world without Alzheimer’s,” states Day.

“I am so proud of all our staff members here at Lofland Park Center,” shares Administrator Tawnya Dennis. “With the funds raised, the Alzheimer’s Association will be able to provide much needed education, support services and care to families affected by this devastating disease, as well as fund critically-needed Alzheimer’s research.”
Throughout 2013, Lofland Park Center employees raised money through multiple efforts including mini-walks, raffles, basket bingo, yard sales, and bake sales.
