Nancy McCaffrey, Director of Senior Housing Development, Kensington Management Group and Operations Director for Terra Vista of Oakbrook Terrace, has partnered with the Alzheimer's Association as an ambassador for the 8th congressional district. After meeting with Jennifer Belkov, Vice President of Public Policy and Advocacy for the Greater Illinois Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, McCaffrey said "the ambassador program seemed like a good fit for the Terra Vista project and allows us to get involved in supporting and changing governments involvement in Alzheimer's Research." The Alzheimer's Associations Ambassador program focuses on educating congressional members like Tammy Duckworth, the 8th congressional district representative, with federal initiatives, such as the Hope for Alzheimer's Act and encouraging congressional support.
McCaffrey's long time commitment to improving Alzheimer's care is strongly evident in the design and personal care she has slated for Terra Vista of Oakbrook Terrace. "It is our goal to provide the best, modern care for residents of Terra Vista and additionally improve care for all people living with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. The best way to do this is to encourage government backing of Alzheimer's specific programs. The Alzheimer's Association is the most recognized and respected advocate for Alzheimer's care, especially research. I am proud to work with them in this fight to end Alzheimer's."
