Alzheimer's Awareness Update

Jul 28, 2014

Alzheimer's Association Florida Gulf Coast

Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia affect many families across the world. Our team is focusing extra attention on Alzheimer’s awareness and fundraising leading up to the Walk to End Alzheimer’s this fall. Here’s an update on the EasyLiving team’s upcoming Alzheimer’s Awareness events and how you can get involved!

In July, we raised money for the Alzheimer’s Association with a 50/50 drawing. In August, we’ll have two wine tasting events to raise funds and awareness.  The wine tastings will be on Thursday, August 21 and Tuesday, August 26 at our offices. Contact Laura Ashford, Director of Marketing, at 727-447-5845 for more information. We’d love to see you there!

Coming up in August, we’ll have another visit from the Alzheimer’s Association’s Memory Mobile. The Florida Gulf Coast chapter’s Memory Mobile “is the only mobile support, prevention and education service delivery vehicle in the country. The Memory Mobile provides outreach education, care consultations, memory screenings and caregiver education targeting targeting low income, rural, isolated and/or inner city people living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers.”

Come by and visit on  August 13th from 11:00am to 2:30pm at 1180 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Suite 701, Clearwater, FL.

Wish you had answers to your Alzheimer’s questions? We’ll be offering some special Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia classes this fall.

Dates: September 12 and November 14
Time: 10a-12p + Q&A at the end
Cost: FREE
20 seats available

These classes are state approved training with our Alzheimer’s and Related Disorder’s Certified Trainer, RN Marilyn Fratello. This is an amazing opportunity for Q&A with a nurse who has years of both professional AND personal experience with Alzheimer’s disease. Space is limited! Call 727-447-5845 now to reserve your spot!

Don’t forget, EasyLiving is here to help with your Alzheimer’s disease questions, concerns and care! Our specially-trained caregivers offer memory care and support in the comfort of your own home, to maintain a sense of routine and calm for your loved one. With an individualized careplan, they can support the client, offer activities to stay engaged, and help your loved one remain safe and healthy at home. If your loved one has anxiety or behavioral issues, it is vital that you work with trained caregivers and a team that understands the disease. We can also provide one-on-one care at a retirement community, assisted living, nursing home or hospital.

Contact our home healthcare team online or at 727-447-5845 for help, advice and resources.
