Show Support for the Millions of People Struggling with Alzheimer’s
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re continuing to offer the latest updates and resources related to the virus. Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected, and we’d like to help however we can. We are doing our best to develop/share resources to help you deal with COVID-19. If your facility needs additional help, the Becky Dorner & Associates Consulting team can provide you with remote consulting services to help ease some of the burden on your staff during this crisis. Also see our new course on Providing Food and Nutrition Services During a Pandemic.
I’d also like to focus a spotlight on a cause that’s near and dear to my heart. As some of you know, I lost my beloved mother on March 31 and my second mom, my dear mother-in-law, on May 21. Both of these incredible women suffered from dementia in their later years. This month is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, a time meant to learn and educate others on Alzheimer’s disease, what we can do to prevent/treat it, and how we can help those affected by it. I’ve included resources on this and other important observances in June in this month’s newsletter.
We have a lot more news to share with you including men’s health, food safety information and more!
