Williamsville, NY (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
Park Creek Senior Living Community, a trusted assisted living and memory care provider in Williamsville, will be hosting Powerful Tools for Caregivers, a six-week educational program for Alzheimer's caregivers. The program, which is designed to help caregivers learn to reduce stress, improve self-confidence in making tough decisions, locate resources and live a balanced life, will be held on Tuesdays beginning October 9th, 2012 from 1:30 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. The program will conclude on November 13th.
"According to the Alzheimer's Association, one in every eight older Americans has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease," said Jane Nogowski of Park Creek Senior Living Community. "With more than 30 residents residing in the memory care unit at Park Creek Senior Living Community, the caregivers here understand the difficulty in seeing loved ones who have been affected by memory impairment."
Caregivers interested in attending the program can register with the Erie County Department of Senior Services at (716) 858-2177 or email caregiver(at)erie(dot)gov. In addition, to bring awareness to Alzheimers and raise funds to help eliminate the disease, The Park Creek Senior Living Community has put together the Park Creek Trekkers, a team who will participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer's, a fundraising event sponsored by the Alzheimer's Association. The Park Creek Trekkers are currently recruiting team members and sponsors for their team.
