Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Audrey Kwik found herself teaching in Texas. After a few years she began to get more involved in helping to manage non-profits. After her father in Dublin was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Audrey sprung into action. Once she began to see the toll this diagnosis can take on not only the patient but the family she decided to apply with the Alzheimer’s Association-North Central Texas Chapter.
Now she has her own ‘boots on the ground’ to help with the mission of eliminating Alzheimer’s all together as the Program Director. Her job is to offer a wide range of support services for caregivers and families affected by this disease. Truly, whatever support someone with or caring for a person suffering from Alzheimer’s is needed, they can provide or point you in the right direction.
“I am also passionate about prevention…leading a brain-healthy lifestyle can prevent or possibly slow down Alzheimer’s.” Our local Alzheimer’s Association has many different education programs to keep your brain and body healthy as you age. As a parent, Audrey knows she won’t be able to be there for her children when they are dealing with their own old age, but there are things she can do to help ensure that they maintain brain health throughout their lifetime. The resources at our Alzheimer’s Association –North Texas Chapter are absolutely invaluable and can be found in the heart of our city.
Audrey is incredibly passionate about ending Alzheimer’s. “I am proud to work for an organization that is at the forefront of research to eradicate this disease,” she says. Alzheimer’s touches all of us and together we can contribute to the effort to find a cure.
