Town Center Mall Memory Walk Benefits FAU Alzheimer's Research

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Those suffering from Alzheimer’s will be the center of attention Sunday at the Town Center Mall in Boca Raton. Then mall will welcome more than 400 walkers as part of the sixth
annual “Keep Memories Alive” walk to benefit  Florida Atlantic University’s Louis and Anne Green Memory and Wellness Center .

This year’s event theme will be “Steppin’ to the Oldies, Bobby Socks Optional!” and is co-chaired by Caring Hearts Auxiliary board members Debbie Gonzalez and Morgan Green and auxiliary members Kelli-Ann Bloechinger and Schuyler Thompson. Walk organizers are also pleased to welcome presenting sponsor Bobby Campbell and Honorary Ambassador Christine E. Lynn and Honorary Chair Elaine J. Wold.

The Memory and Wellness Center, located on FAU’s Boca Raton campus, is part of FAU’s Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing and averages 16,000 visits each year, and one-third of the visitors are caregivers who have found respite. The center offers a wide range of services and programs to individuals with mild to moderate memory disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia. Visits start with a comprehensive memory evaluation that often helps diagnose a memory disorder and begin a treatment plan with a patient’s physician. The day center provides an active and secure place for families to bring spouses or parents who are experiencing memory loss, and the caregiver support programs have a positive impact on life at home.

When: Sunday, November 6th, at 9am.

Where: Boca Town Center Mall: 6000 Glades Road, Boca Raton.
