The saying goes that if you’re going to talk the talk, you’ve got to walk the walk and in the fight against Alzheimer’s, the elder law and estate planning Attorneys of Grimaldi & Yeung have been doing just that for the last four years, putting together a team in support of the Coney Island Walk to End Alzheimer’s, which this year will take place on September 22.

Partner Judith Grimaldi says: “Each year our firm is proud to walk hand in hand with Brooklyn caregivers and the families of Alzheimer patients who provide such vital care to our neighbors and friends who have Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. We honor their caring by supporting the Alzheimer’s Association’s search for a cure.”

Partner Pauline Yeung-Ha adds: “This walk is particularly meaningful. There is tremendous support from the community and an abundance of resources available for them. Once a year, as a reminder, we are able to let our clients, families and friends know that they are not alone.”

Grimaldi & Yeung reaches out across the city to find partners for their efforts. Among those participating this year are  Andrew and Peter Fabrikant, diamond and estate jewelry experts in Manhattan;  Senior Umbrella Network of Brooklyn, a not-for-profit organization of professionals that advocate for seniors in the Brooklyn area and The New York Memory Center in Park Slope.

The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s support, care and research.

The walk is held each year in more than 600 communities across the nation. Participating in these walks provides unique opportunities to get involved with the cause through advocacy initiatives and clinical trial enrollment in the hopes of eliminating the disease through the advancement of research.

The goal of the Alzheimer’s Association, in addition to funding research, is to provide and enhance care and support for all those affected and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
