Wesley Village Joins the Walk to End Alzheimer’s


Wesley village Alzheimer'sShelton, CT (October 6, 2015) – Staff, family members, and volunteers of Wesley Village joined together on Sunday, October 4th for the 2015 Walk to End Alzheimer’s (Fairfield County), held at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk, Connecticut.

Proud to be part of the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research, the Wesley Village Team included members from each community on the senior living campus: Crosby Commons Assisted Living Community, Wesley Heights Assisted Living Community, Lifestyle Transitions Memory Care, and Bishop Wicke Health and Rehabilitation Center.

The campus hosted several fundraising events during the months of August and September to help support the cause, including a “Scoop Night” at Rita’s of Shelton, a “Scoop Day” on the campus, and other employee events. The group proudly raised over $1400 for the Alzheimer’s Association.

Each community on the Wesley Village campus was represented at the walk and involved in the fundraising, including the campus’s new memory care neighborhood, Lifestyle Transitions. Lifestyle Transitions offers specialized assisted living in a secure, supportive environment for those living with memory loss, and also hosts a monthly Alzheimer’s and dementia support group. The support group is held on the 3rd Thursday of each month, from 2:00 – 3:00 pm and is open to the local community. Wesley Village is located at 580 Long Hill Avenue in Shelton, CT. To learn more about the support group or the continuum of care offered at Wesley Village, please visit www.wesleyvillage-ct.org or contact Lisa Bisson at 203-225-5024.
