World Alzheimer’s Month

World Alzheimer’s Month, observed every September, serves as a poignant reminder of the global impact of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. This month, let us join hands to illuminate the lives of individuals living with Alzheimer’s and to empower caregivers, families, and communities in their journey.

Understanding Alzheimer’s:

Alzheimer’s disease affects millions worldwide, causing memory loss, cognitive decline, and a significant impact on daily life. Despite the challenges it poses, raising awareness about Alzheimer’s not only contributes to early diagnosis and better management but also fosters empathy and reduces stigma.

Supporting Caregivers and Families:

Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s can be emotionally and physically taxing. During this month, let us extend our support to caregivers, who tirelessly provide love and assistance to their loved ones. From sharing resources and offering respite care to creating a supportive network, small gestures can make a big difference.

How You Can Make a Difference:

Educate: Share accurate information about Alzheimer’s to dispel myths and misconceptions.
Support: Participate in local events, virtual fundraisers, and advocacy campaigns.
Connect: Reach out to someone affected by Alzheimer’s and show them your compassion.
Learn: Stay informed about the latest advancements in Alzheimer’s research and care.

Together, we can raise awareness, inspire action, and work towards a world where Alzheimer’s is no longer a source of fear but a challenge we meet with empathy, understanding, and determination.

"OMG!! This nursing home is amazing especially this one worker. Her name is Michelle. When I tell you she's so great at what she does, I mean she's great. I visit my aunt quite frequently who resides on the 7th floor. Prior to her being assigned on that floor; there were a lot of unsanitary conditions especially the stench and filth. All of a sudden I notice this girl (Michelle) has been working on the floor and all of those unsanitary conditions including the stench left. I never seen a person that take so much pride and dignity in cleaning all of those rooms and the whole floor from top to bottom. This floor is like a brand new floor that I never seen. I'm going to pay her a visit the next time I see my aunt and make her an offer at my firm as a executive assistant!"

Was successfully decanulatted and i thank the Respiratory team for doing an excellent job. The nursing staff and the anxillary staff as well are doing superb job. I reccomend this facility who has concers about their love ones or family membets who are not satisfied with the other facility to request for a transfer in this facility"

"This is a great place for rehabilitation... my father was at split rock on Baychester ave. In bronx and would go back and forth to hospital every 3 or 4 days because of carelessness with the staff... we said enough was enough when my father flatlined .WAYNE REHABILITATION has saved my fathers life. They are very good at diagnosing, rehabilitation and nutrition. Everyone there looks like they love their job. Never a problem with anyone any my father loves it there. He has recovered nicely and will be coming home soon. I highly recommend WAYNE REHABILITATION AND NURSING to everyone."

"I had a knee replacement and went to Wayne Center through a referral from a friend. I immediately noticed the ambiance of a modern facility to be very appealing clean well lit and organized. An administrative staff visited my room and explained their role and expectations. Nurses were very attentive and especially to the elderly and always smiling. Except for breakfast the food was very good quality and taste. Rehab staff was great I enjoyed working with Rosalyn she really made me work. Only drawback in rehab was they need another machine for legs. Staff was A+ from nurses, administration and maintenance-"noticed when their was a spill on the floor they would quickly clean up".
I would definitely refer anyone who is thinking of sending their parent, grandparent or loved one."
