Eve Belle Care Home Joins Alzheimer's Memory Walk to Make a Difference
Staff and families of residents at Eve Belle Care Home in Wickford, demonstrated their commitment to the fight against dementia, by participating in the Alzheimer's Society Memory Walk on Sunday the 1st of October.
The event, held at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, brought together staff, residents, and their families in a heartwarming display of solidarity to raise funds for the Alzheimer's Society. With a shared goal of raising awareness and contributing to dementia research, the community at Eve Belle Care Home walked a collective 5 kilometres.
The highlight of the day was when the participants, dressed in Sanders Senior Living t-shirts and Alzheimer’s Society t-shirts, set off on their journey. While some staff and residents' families took part in this scenic walk, the true spirit of unity was on display within the care home itself.
Inside Eve Belle Care Home, staff and residents embarked on a heartwarming journey of their own, completing four laps of the care home premises. Their participation not only demonstrated their support for the cause but also showcased how individuals living with dementia can lead fulfilling lives and actively engage with their community.
Eve Belle Care Home's involvement in the Alzheimer's Memory Walk carries profound significance. The primary objective of this event was to raise awareness about dementia, a condition that affects millions of people worldwide. The participants aimed to show that as a community, they can contribute to ongoing research efforts.
"I am so proud of everyone for taking part in this year’s Memory Walk in Hylands Park" said Arrianne Concepcion, Home Manager at Eve Belle care home. "It's not just about raising funds; it's about showing our residents that they are not alone in this journey and that we are here to support them every step of the way."
