On Sunday, November 1st, Friends for Life Homecare participated in the Alzheimer’s Foundation’s annual walk. Friends for Life has been sponsoring the AFA walk for 3 consecutive years.
In the morning, the Friends for Life Team met at Babylon Town Hall to walk within the Respite Relief Park. The Park is the first of its kind anywhere in the country. It is serving as AFA’s model for sites across the United States.
Caregivers can use this park as a resource for relief. Therefore, it will help prevent “caregiver burnout”. The President of the Alzheimer’s Foundation says that the park is beautiful, peaceful and dementia-friendly. “The Respite Relief Park is a place people can go to get out of the house and learn helpful information.”
Finally, not only did Friends for Life Sponsor the walk, they also donated tons of bagels from Broadway Gourmet for all of those participating.
To conclude, hundreds of people from all over the country participated in a virtual walk to support the foundation. It was a great way to celebrate the start of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.
