Last month, Inver Glen began hosting a three-part series dedicated to education and support of those caring for someone suffering from memory loss. It’s titled “Soup, Sandwich, and Support,” and these are photos from the recent December 6 event: “Care Scenarios.”
Inver Glen’s Residence Director, Julie Kelly, and Activity Director, Sue Hastings, designed the program for both family members and professional caregivers. If you’re experiencing the challenges of memory loss, we’d love to provide support! The last part of the series will be Friday, January 10 from noon – 1 p.m. Learn more: https://bit.ly/35hsv2G
On September 28, Inver Glen Senior Living and the Southview Senior
Communities team will be joining the Alzheimer’s Association Minnesota-North
Dakota for the 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Target Field. There are 5.8
million Americans living with Alzheimer’s today, and that number is projected
to rise to nearly 14 million by 2050. We’d love your help as we work to raise
awareness, reduce risk, and eliminate Alzheimer’s through research and care. Learn more about donating and/or registering to walk.
Together, we can fight to end Alzheimer’s!
Worldwide, more than 50 million people are living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. During Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness month in June, the Alzheimer’s Association encourages people around the world to learn about and spread awareness. This month, go purple and inspire action.
Alzheimer’s is a disease that attacks the brain. The most common form of dementia, Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of the aging process. The disease affects memory, thought process, and behavior, and is serious enough to interfere with daily life, progressively worsening over time. The sixth leading cause of death in the United States, Alzheimer’s has no cure.
Learn more about the prevalence and dangers of Alzheimer’s with the “Alzheimer’s Association 2020 Facts and Figures” video.
Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month
The Minnesota-North Dakota Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association suggests these ways to learn more and get involved during Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month:
Spread awareness of the 10 Ways to Love Your Brain – it’s never too early or too late to develop healthy habits, and combining these habits, like regular cardiovascular exercise, a balanced, healthy diet, challenging your mind, and getting enough sleep, can help reduce risk of cognitive decline.
Share your story and get inspired by others who also tell of their experiences with the disease.
Go Purple – wear the official color of Alzheimer’s awareness and turn your social media profiles purple as well.
Participate in The Longest Day event on June 20 in honor of those facing the disease. Select any activity that you love (or one loved by someone affected by Alzheimer’s), raise money to advance the cause, and share your story.
