Welch Senior Living raises over $14,000 for Alzheimer’s Awareness

The Welch Senior Living Team proudly turned out to support the 2017 South Shore Walk to End Alzheimer’s, to date, raising nearly $14,000.

Welch Senior Living employees pledged their support in a major way during the 2017 South Shore Walk to end Alzheimer’s on Saturday, September 17 at Pilgrim Memorial State Park in Plymouth. Four Welch Senior Living individuals or teams were named Grand Champions, honored for raising $1,000 or more. Additionally, Welch Senior Living was a $2,500 corporate Promise Garden Sponsor, which brings the company’s fund-raising total to date to $13,760 for 2017.

The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research. Welch Senior Living offers retirement housing and care options in Duxbury, Marshfield, Hingham and Weymouth. The company’s communities in Hingham and Marshfield offer assisted living memory care, and Allerton House at Central Park in Weymouth, which offers assisted living, will offer assisted living memory care in 2018.

Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States and more than five million Americans are living with the disease. Nearly 15 million family members are caring for a loved one with the disease, according to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Welch Senior Living includes two independent living communities, the only continuing care retirement community from Boston to Cape Cod offering garden homes and two memory care assisted living communities, one in Marshfield and the other in Hingham, with another opening in Weymouth in 2018.

Baby Animals Visit Allerton House in Weymouth

Sitting still and regal, a Silkie, enjoys the soothing strokes of resident Joann McLaughlin.

Pets and small animals make people of all ages feel good. Residents at Allerton House at Central Park know this is true and were delighted for a chance to visit with and pet a variety of baby farm animals, including bunnies, kids, and piglets from Farm Visits, a traveling petting farm. In older adults, studies have shown that pets can relieve stress and even help to fight off depression. It’s easy to see by the faces of residents that a visit by the baby animals is truly beneficial.
