Linda Seaver, TreasurerI recently have been given the privilege to serve on the Board of Directors for the Havasu Community Health Foundation. I believe in the strategic thinking and the forward vision of the Havasu Community Health Foundation and I love working side by side with all the dedicated volunteers involved in transforming a vision into a mission focused on “A Healthier Havasu.
I enjoyed a 22 year career as both a teacher and administrator in education. My husband, David and I came to Lake Havasu City from the San Francisco Bay area, after my retirement from Menlo College in 2005.  There I worked in the capacity of a senior college administrator, Director of Administration and Operation and Interim Vice President of Finance.
In 2004, my Mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, and immediately after her diagnoses my husband and I made the decision to care for her in our home.  Finding that the San Francisco Bay area was too cold and damp for her we made yet another life changing decision to retire, and move to our home in Lake Havasu City, so Mom could enjoy the comfort of her familiar desert, which she was still aware of.
Today Dr. Judy Selberg and I are taking our many years of educational experience and in conjunction with our very dynamic advisory board’s knowledge and experience with Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, and the support of the Alzheimer’s Association; we have established the new Alzheimer’s Dementia Educational Center under the umbrella of the Havasu Community Health Foundation. The Havasu Community Health Foundation’s Alzheimer’s-Dementia Education and Support Center provides and promotes specialized education and compassionate support for professionals and families facing Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
Knowledge of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease can benefit your family and your community because together we can:
  • Reduce the stigma
  • Better understand a complicated disease
  • Improve care
