Senior Care in Woodland CA
ApexCare is extremely proud to be one of the sponsors each month for the Yolo Alzheimer’s Cafe held at St. John’s Retirement Village in Woodland.
For the month of December the Cafe had special guests from a local preschool come to spread some holiday cheer by singing to residents and all who attended. There were also games and prizes and great refreshments and holiday sparkling cider to enjoy among friends. Most importantly the seniors were able to create home made holiday thank you cards to show their appreciation for the Veteran’s who have served our country.
For those who might not know exactly what an Alzheimer’s Cafe is exactly, we wanted to give some background.
It is well known that when there is a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s in the family that the disorder is a constant presence in everyday life & provides constant challenges. Going out in public as time goes on becomes increasingly more stressful, for example. Therefore people living with the disease sometime resort to isolation rather than continuing to engage socially. The powerful concept behind the Cafe is that the environment is created such that the disease is simply just another element in the person’s life and not the focus.
Some of the benefits of the cafe for the attendee’s is that if offers a social experience that adds some variety to an otherwise normal routine. Family caregivers, friends and family are encouraged to stay and participate & the Cafe is open to everyone. The Cafe is a great way for participants to engage in a wonderful supportive environment and just enjoy themselves without the constant reminder that they have Alzheimer’s. There is no cost to participate.
