Enriching Happiness!  Sheri Maddox Chats About Her Passion for Alzheimer’s Care and Cure

Aug 13, 2014

A rare native Atlantan, Sheri Maddox attended Georgia State University, earning an undergraduate degree in business.  She started her career in sales.  Not too long after graduation, Sheri’a grandmother passed away.  Her grandfather had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2001, and needed to move out of his house to a community where he could get the care and attention he needed.  As Sheri became involved in her grandfather’s care, she realized how much she felt called to work as an advocate for seniors.

Today, Sheri is the Director of Community Relations for Bickford of Buckhead.  She loves the fact that Bickford is family-owned, and that they live their motto, "enriching happiness".

Sheri also advocates for seniors through her volunteer work with the Alzheimer’s Association.  She got involved with this organization as a result of her grandfather’s diagnosis, and has found a place where she can really make a difference.  Our listeners can help Sheri make a difference by attending a terrific evening of food, cocktails and a special concert by jazz artist Spencer Day on September 6, at 7pm at Center Stage.  Tickets are $30, and can be purchased at www.ticketalternative.com

Additionally, Sheri is also very involved in Atlanta's Walk to End Alzheimer’s, being held on September 27 starting at 8:30 am at Atlantic Station.  To get more information or register a team, visit www.alz.org.  To find out more about Bickford of Buckhead, call 404-531-0145, visit their website at www.enrichinghappiness.com, or send Sheri an email at Sheri.Maddox@enrichinghappiness.com.
