Car Parade of Gratitude Staged at Wesley

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Caregivers, volunteers and Alzheimer’s Association staff members showcased decorated vehicles and colorful signs in support the of staff at The Wesley Community during a “hooray for our heroes” car parade on May 21, 2020. 

The Alzheimer’s Association, Northeastern New York arranged the car parade in recognition of nurses and staff during the stay-at-home order. 

Individuals living in nursing homes and senior living facilities are extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 due to the community nature of these settings. In addition, the large majority of individuals living in these settings are older with underlying chronic conditions that put them at higher risk for COVID-19. Yet during these challenging and frequently heartbreaking times, nurses at these facilities have stepped up in the face of this pandemic.

The Wesley Community hosts a caregiver support group for the Alzheimer’s Association and is one of the top fundraisers for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s - Queensbury.
