Alzheimer's is the most expensive disease in the United States. It costs tax payers $20 million every hour. And the cost isn’t just financial — one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia, and more than 5 million Americans are living with this disease.
Investing in medical research has a proven history of saving lives. This is why we need you to tell Congress to make Alzheimer's a priority by increasing research funding.
You can start by sending your voice to Washington to assist in the funding of Alzheimer’s research and support by joining Thunderclap through your social media.

Did You Know?
Manor Park is a non-profit organization, but do you know what that really means?
A non-profit organization (NPO) is an organization whose purpose is something other than making a profit for shareholders. Non-profit organizations are highly varied, although many people have come to associate NPOs with charitable organizations. Although charities do make up a large portion of the sector, there are many other types of non-profit organizations. Overall, they tend to be either “member-serving” or “community-serving”. Manor Park is a “community-serving” organization, focused on providing a full-spectrum of senior living services to the community.
In economic terms, a non-profit organization use its surplus revenues to further achieve its purpose or mission, rather than distributing its surplus income to the organization's shareholders (or owners) as profit or dividends. Although NPOs are permitted to generate surplus revenues, profits made must all be used to support the operation of the organization for its self-preservation, expansion, or plans. For example, Manor Park owns approximately 750,000 square feet in of livable building space that must be maintained.
Working for a non-profit organization allows you to engage your head and your heart into your work. A non-profit business values the individual and allows you to work with others who have a passion for helping others, also.
Barbara and I moved to Manor Park because we know it is a great place to live. My mother, Nettie Stooksberry, and my grandmother, Myrtle Oldfield, lived here so we knew everything they had to offer on campus.We use the pharmacy, pantry, wellness center and enjoy the Grill.
We travel a lot! Locking the door and leaving with the knowledge that our home and yard are cared for is perfect for our lifestyle.
The outdoor kitchen/covered patio project has finally been completed! Thanks to the generous gift from Concho Resources, it’s a beautiful venue where we can now hold some of our special events. Check it out!
