​​​​​​
September 9, 2014 – On today’s episode of The Meredith Vieira Show, Meredith featured a segment on Alzheimer’s disease.

Meredith lost her father and aunt to Alzheimer’s, and in June, her brother died from the disease. Home Instead Senior Care worked with our friends at The Meredith Vieira Show and the Alzheimer’s Association to increase Alzheimer’s awareness and help raise funds for research and care.

The program features an interview with actors Seth and Lauren Rogen about their activism in Alzheimer’s causes and subsequent creation of Hilarity for Charity. Vieira also interviews a couple whose lives were changed forever when the husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease at age 29.

Throughout the show, Vieira shines a spotlight on the heartache and challenges of Alzheimer’s disease through compelling conversations with her guests, and much to her surprise, the show closes with check presentations made to the Alzheimer’s Association in the name of her brother, Steve Vieira.

During the show, Molly Carpenter, Carergiver Advocate at Home Instead Senior Care, delivered a special message to Meredith, along with a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association from Home Instead.
