Memory Walk Team Wartburg Cares Oct 2011
PRLog - Nov. 4, 2011 - MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- The Wartburg Adult Care Community was pleased to be a Bronze-level sponsor of the Alzheimer’s Association of the Hudson Valley/Rockland/Westchester Memory Walk, which took place in October at White Plains High School.  In addition to corporate sponsorship, The Wartburg Cares! Team, which consisted of staff, community members and care givers, has raised another $1400 in donations to the Alzheimer’s Association to be used for research for prevention, treatment and a cure.

The Wartburg Cares! Team laced up their walking shoes and joined the crowds of others travelling the 5K route who wanted to help the 5.3 million Americans battling the disease.  The Wartburg offers a variety of memory care programs and caregiver support for residents and those living in the community.  

“The Alzheimer’s Foundation is an important resource for families struggling with the illness,” said Janet Palazzolo, Administrator of Meadowview Assisted Living at The Wartburg and Team Captain. “Every day at The Wartburg, we help people with dementia with their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.  It was very meaningful for our staff to be at the walk to show support for the Alzheimer’s Foundation.”
