Walk to End Alzheimer's

Walk to End Alzheimer's at Centennial Park

September 28, 2019

Saturday September 28th we participated in Walk to End Alzheimer's at Centennial Park! Elyse, our Homecare Consultant for Carroll County walked for her Mother and shares her story...

"I walked with my sister in memory and celebration of my Mother, Lise Szparaga, who lost her battle with Alzheimer’s 9 years ago. As a Director of Nursing, my Mother directed and provided care for countless people that suffered with this disease.

With every hand she held, every word of reassurance, and every prayer she prayed with her patients, she made a difference - no matter how big or small. My ability to strive to make the same difference for others every day through my position at Visiting Angels, is truly a blessing for me.

I have the ability to honor my Mother’s memory with every new face I meet, every new hand I myself hold, and ultimately through the care we are able to provide. Alzheimer’s may take the best of our loved ones but it can never take away their legacy."

Bracelets are $2 each or 3 for $5. Paper pin up flowers are $1 each and will be posted on our "flower" wall here at Visiting Angels with the name of the donor.
