“We Take Care of Our Own” the Alzheimer’s New Jersey televised benefit that aired in June 2020 on News 12 + has been nominated for a New York Market Emmy Award in the “Community Service” category!
This televised benefit was created during the height of the COVID-19 health crisis to replace our cancelled in-person events. We Take Care of Our Own honored the strength of New Jersey residents living with Alzheimer’s disease, raised awareness about the work of Alzheimer’s New Jersey to fight Alzheimer’s in our state and inspired hope for a better future.
68% of New Jersey residents say they know someone who has or had Alzheimer’s. Our televised benefit gave a voice to the 68% – and a chance to explain the impact of Alzheimer’s on their lives as a person with Alzheimer’s, a caregiver, a spouse, son, daughter, or grandchild.
We are thrilled with this incredible honor and recognition. The Awards will be announced at the end of September, so stay tuned!!
