Every year on the summer solstice (the longest day of the year), people around the world come together to participate in sunrise-to-sunset activities geared toward raising awareness of those living with Alzheimer’s disease: the people who live the longest day every day. “The Longest Day” was created by the Alzheimer’s Association to pay tribute to the strength, passion and endurance of those living with Alzheimer’s, their families and their caregivers. Residents of Presbyterian Village North recently gathered to commemorate The Longest Day. They started the morning with a Sunrise Stretch at the senior living community’s gazebo. Later that afternoon, residents gathered in the Fun and Games room to stuff goody bags which will be distributed at the upcoming Alzheimer’s memory walk this fall. To close, residents gathered for a movie night to watch “The Post” starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. Everyone was encouraged to wear purple to raise awareness, empower individuals and inspire hope.
