Style, that's yours. It's your story.
 
I didn’t have to search far for inspiration. It was all around me.
In my customers, in friends, in family and often complete strangers.
Everybody had a story.

My Story

Listening to my optical store customer’s dissatisfaction with the poor optics and craftsmanship of the present selection of ready-made readers, I knew that if I applied my 30 plus years of super fastidious fashion and optical expertise, I could make reading glasses of comparable quality to high-end prescription eyewear- and I did.

The road that got me here today was superseded by my responsibilities as a mom, a wife and a daughter. But when my father died and my mother developed Alzheimer’s, I couldn’t help but think about my life and all the things I wanted to do. Renee's Readers was one of them. I knew it was now or never.

Not Just My Cause

The expense and shortage of qualified help has left many Alzheimer’s caregivers with no choice but to care for their loved ones on their own and with little or no relief. Feeling isolated and exhausted with the responsibility of all day and night care, caregivers are more likely to experience their own declining health.

The Alzheimer’s Association has an extensive support system for caregivers and Alzheimer’s patients.  Support groups, social engagement programming and a 24/7 helpline are just a few of the resources made available that give caregivers support. They are a remarkable community of help. Some are employees but there are so many volunteers. Most of them have first-hand experience with the disease; many don’t.  Their hearts are big and the comfort and care they provide help make it easier to cope. 

As this disease becomes more widespread, more people are committing to involvement. They spread more comfort and more care and are raising more funds to provide all types of support services and further research. The Alzheimer’s Association is an amazing community of care and I have been a part of it for many years.

Every Alzheimer’s story is horrible.

Alzheimer's is not just my cause; it is our cause. In some way, Alzheimer’s disease will affect every one of us; we need to find a cure.
