Senior Helpers coming to Alzheimer’s Walk with Virtual Dementia Tour
Senior Helpers of Spring Hill, Florida is planning to support Citrus County Walk Aware for Alzheimer’s in Floral City on October 21, 2018, as both an event sponsor and a provider of the ever-popular Virtual Dementia Tour, a science-based simulation that demonstrates what it is like to live with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
Senior Helpers President Glen Scharfeld, who is also on the Alzheimer’s Family Organization board of directors, states, “We are excited about returning to Citrus County Walk Aware this year. We had an extremely positive reaction last year from visitors to our Virtual Dementia Tour (VDT), so this year we have decided to increase our commitment as a Pacesetter Sponsor with a financial contribution of $500 in addition to returning with the VDT.
Senior Helpers offers a wide range of personal and long-term care services to help seniors age in the comfort of their own homes. For more information, call 352-486-7882 or go to www.seniorhelpers.com/naturecoast-fl on line.
Citrus County Walk Aware is a fund-raising event for the Alzheimer’s Family Organization, a charitable non-profit that serves eight west-central Florida counties, including Citrus County. AFO Executive Director Kathleen Winters states, “We are so please to have the support of Senior Helpers. Because AFO receives no funding from state or federal government agencies, we rely on donations, sponsorship, and fund-raising events to continue our service to caregivers for those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.”
