Gifts That Really Do Keep Giving
During the shopping frenzy that most of us enter into right before the holidays, we often forget to shop with consideration, but giving gifts that give back are a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday with loved ones. This particular cause is near and dear to my heart. For many years my mother-in-law suffered from Alzheimer's Disease and for a long time we weren't sure what was wrong with her. As a result, she was often mistreated or looked upon as being "difficult" when in fact she was deteriorating from this dreadful disease, for which there is still no cure. Many of us have been touched by this disease, but are paralyzed because we are at a loss and many of us know caregivers that are often overworked and live with little support themselves. Now you can not only give a wonderful gift to someone you love, but you can purchase your gifts knowing that the money will go towards the Alzheimer's Foundation of America. At the Alzheimer's Foundation of American store, you can shop for a holiday gift for someone you know who is a caregiver. The beautifully-crafted silver jewelry is significant to caregivers and the money goes for a wonderful cause. You can also purchase a special quilt for families to share in memory of a loved one who is suffering from Alzheimer's Disease. If you yourself are a caregiver, then don't forget that there is a DVD made just for you on how to care for your loved one with love and dignity. Also, remember that you can always contribute to this wonderful organization in memory or in honor of a loved one and that is really the greatest gift of all and truly symbolizes the meaning of this holiday season. Afterall, gifts that signify unconditional love really do keep giving long after the holiday season is over.
