Members of 25 Rotary Clubs in the San Fernando, Santa Clarita and San Gabriel valleys will make up a sizable portion of the thousands expected to prowl around the L.A. Zoo and Griffith Park in Saturday's Alzheimer's Memory Walk. The 200 commitments and donations received so far from Rotarians is exceptional in the event's five-year history, said Christina Martinez of the Alzheimer's Assn.

Art is an expressive medium, and it's by the power of the brush that local Alzheimer's victims communicate. The Alzheimer's Assn. of Orange County is showcasing victims' artwork this fall in its Third Annual Memories in the Making art show. Original artwork will be auctioned and the proceeds will benefit the association. Volunteers at the Alzheimer's Assn. are creating a calendar that will feature 14 color paintings from the exhibit plus information about each artist.

An elderly man who suffered from memory loss set off from his Ventura County home in his car to visit relatives in Los Angeles, got lost and resurfaced some time later--in Las Vegas. A disoriented Oxnard woman in her late 60s wandered away from her home at night and was picked up by police. Officers took her paranoid delusions seriously and interrogated worried family members when they arrived to retrieve her.

I am amazed, incredulous, and in a sense outraged by the remarks of Shelly Fabares, chairperson of an Alzheimer's Assn. benefit ("Alzheimer's Assn. Spends a 'Night at Sardi's,' " Nov. 23) indicating that Alzheimer's disease "makes you feel helpless because you can't do anything for this person you love." As a resident about to become 85 of Leisure World, with its many stimulating activities and with a highly competent and effective social service department working to promote healthy, useful lives of an increasing older population, I think it is obvious that improving environmental social circumstances helps prevent the impairment of our physical and mental capacities.

The program, Memories in the Making, uses artistic expression--painting, sculpting, collage making and drawing--to help patients remember their past and help relieve stress. Alzheimer's patients typically suffer from profound memory loss, disorientation and speech difficulty. There is no cure.

Just as scientists are announcing a breakthrough in their understanding of howAlzheimer'sspreads through the brain, robbing its sufferers of memories and cognitive functioning, the Obama administration is proposing a dramatic increase in federal funding for Alzheimer's research. The president's budget for fiscal year 2013 is expected to request $80 million more than the $458 million currently allocated. It calls for an additional $26 million in funds to help support families and others who take on the task of caring for people with Alzheimer's.

About 250 people streamed into the Four Seasons Hotel in Newport Beach on Saturday to attend a Jewel of an Evening to Remember, a benefit for the Alzheimer's Assn. of Orange County. Guests bid on silent auction items during a cocktail reception, enjoyed a sit-down repast of potato-crusted halibut and danced to the music of the Sam Conti Orchestra.
