HASTINGS – Almost everyone has or had someone close to them who has struggled with dementia and Alzheimer’s or knows someone who is in that situation.
That’s why it’s important to Walk to End Alzheimer’s, so one day a cure can be found. Cheri Theesen, Executive Director for the Kensington in Hastings, says that she sees people like this everyday in their memory care center.
Theesen says it’s important to remember that, even though they have a debilitating disease, they are still people and it’s important to still give them an enjoyable life as opposed to just treating them. She says the Walk to End Alzheimer’s is an important event.
The Hastings walk will be on Sunday, August 25th at Libs Park. If you can’t make that one the other Tri-Cities will be having their own walks. The Grand Island walk will be on September 8th at Sucks Park. The Kearney one is on October 6th at Yanney Park. You can register as an individual or a team at ALZ.org.
