Press Release, Western New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association
ALBION — The Western New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association will hold a Safety Fair for Orleans County residents from 1 to 3 p.m. on Thursday, February 23, for those caring for loved ones with dementia. The event will take place at the Cornell Cooperative Extension on Route 31 at the 4-H Fairgrounds.
“Caring for someone with dementia and knowing how to keep them safe is a tough job,” said Chelsea Torgalski, education program manager at the WNY Chapter. “The Alzheimer’s Association, along with other community organizations, will offer resources to help with these challenges.”
In addition to safety and community information, care consultants will be on site to meet privately with caregivers if needed.
Residents may attend anytime between 1 and 3 p.m. Registration is not required but recommended at bit.ly/OCSAFETY. Anyone who registers will receive free safety tools when they attend.
The free program is supported in part by a grant from the New York State Department of Health.
