Gail Lindsey Legacy Society

Alzheimer’s Los Angeles is the leading community-based organization providing care and support that addresses the needs of people facing Alzheimer’s or another dementia in the greater Los Angeles area. For over 40 years, Alzheimer’s Los Angeles has focused on providing programs and services for caregiving families and improving the quality of life for people living with Alzheimer’s. The traditions and heritage that are part of the mission of Alzheimer’s Los Angeles will endure when we provide for its long-term financial stability.

In recognition of those who uphold these traditions, we established the Gail Lindsey Legacy Society. Gail was a long-time, dedicated volunteer who devoted her time and energy to Alzheimer’s Los Angeles. She included Alzheimer’s LA in her estate plans, and her legacy will live on for generations to come. We named our legacy society in her memory to honor her commitment to our mission and serve as an inspiration to others. By naming Alzheimer’s Los Angeles in your estate plans, your contribution allows us to continue our essential work into the next generation and for generations to come. Joining the Lindsey Legacy Society is done by designating Alzheimer’s Los Angeles as a beneficiary in your estate plans. By making such a gift, you create your own personal legacy. You ensure Alzheimer’s Los Angeles’s excellence in providing the highest level of compassionate and quality care to our community well into the future.
