Health Info & Resources for Seniors
By 2050 it is estimated that 32 million Americans will be living with some form of dementia. That puts tremendous pressure on us living in the Lehigh Valley community to help improve the lives of people living with diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, Early Onset Dementia, Lewy Body Dementia, Vascular Dementia, etc. Surely there are opportunities for people to move to memory care accommodations in the Lehigh Valley, but that is not the solution for the large majority of people living with these diseases. Family members want to provide care ‘at home’ for their loved one who is living with the disease, and long term care in a quality memory support care facility may not be financially feasible.
For this reason, Senior Solutions, a not-for-profit Home Care and Care Management organization, owned and operated by Morningstar Living, is opening the Morningstar Memory Café for care partners who are taking care of a loved one who has early onset dementia.
This community outreach initiative is committed to providing hospitality and inclusion that offers individuals the opportunity to be part of a community free of social stigma. Bi-monthly gatherings will be held to provide activities for care partners and care recipients in an environment where they can socialize with others. Activities will include education, music, dancing, the arts and other engaging programs.
The Morningstar Memory Café by Senior Solutions opens officially on May 14, 2020 at the Advent Moravian Church located at 3730 Jacksonville Road in Bethlehem, PA. Bi-Monthly Gatherings are scheduled for the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month from 10 AM to 12 NOON. There is no cost to attend. The Morningstar Memory Café is hosted by experienced professionals from Senior Solutions who are Certified Dementia Specialists along with trained volunteers.
