Wartburg Cares Team Participates in 2011 Memory Walk
The Wartburg Adult Care Community provided sponsorship and raised funds for the 2011 Alzheimer's Foundation Hudson Valley/Rockland/Westchester Memory Walk
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.”
