Eisai Inc. and the Alzheimer's Association Support Award to Recognize Critical Role of Pharmacists in Alzheimer's Care

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Eisai Inc., in coordination with the Alzheimer's Association, calls on individuals with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers across America to nominate local pharmacists for the 2009 C.A.R.E. (Commitment to Alzheimer's. Recognition of Excellence.) Pharmacy Award. This award recognizes the vital role that pharmacists play in helping as many as 5.3 million Americans living with Alzheimer's disease and their 10 million caregivers.(1)

Now in its ninth year, the C.A.R.E. Pharmacy Award reflects Eisai's human health care (hhc) mission, which regards patients and their families as the most important participants in the health care process. The C.A.R.E. Pharmacy Award is one way for people with the disease and caregivers to acknowledge the extraordinary efforts of community pharmacists and their impact on the lives of people affected by Alzheimer's disease.

"Alzheimer's is a disease that affects both patients and their caregivers, and Eisai's commitment to the patient and caregiver communities is unwavering," said Cynthia Schwalm, President of Eisai Inc. "We recognize the integral role that community pharmacists play in each patient's treatment and care, providing ongoing monitoring, counseling and support. The C.A.R.E. Pharmacy Award allows us to acknowledge their efforts and showcase best practices in caregiving techniques. We are proud to be working with the Alzheimer's Association to honor the extraordinary contributions of pharmacists who are making a difference in the lives of people affected by Alzheimer's disease."

In addition to being recognized, the winning pharmacist's local Alzheimer's Association chapter will receive a $1,500 donation for its vital support programs. Another $1,500 donation will go to the Alzheimer's Association chapters located in the areas from which the most nominations are submitted.

"The Alzheimer's Association is excited to partner again with Eisai to recognize pharmacists who actively participate as part of the team of care providers for those with Alzheimer's disease," said Elizabeth Gould, MSW, director of quality care programs for the Alzheimer's Association. "We commend pharmacists who take the time to build relationships with their patients living with Alzheimer's and their caregivers, helping to educate them about Alzheimer's disease and enhancing the support they receive."

How to Nominate a Pharmacist

Alzheimer's patients and caregivers can nominate pharmacists through September 2009 by visiting www.carepharmacyaward.com.
