VERO BEACH, Fla., June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- On the longest day of the year, the summer solstice, the residents, families and associates of Palm Bay Memory Care unified to support the Alzheimer's Association's global initiative, 'The Longest Day.' The longest day of the year is the day with most light, therefore 'The Longest Day' initiative symbolizes the unity of participants to fight the darkness of Alzheimer's through various activities and fundraising events.
The team at Palm Bay Memory Care used their creativity and community partnerships to honor this occasion while maintaining current safety guidelines regarding social distancing. Residents prepared for the day by creating a variety of upcycled and recycled art for their craft sale. On event day, participants enjoyed sno-cones provided by community partner, Vitas; the Executive Chef and team prepared box lunches for fundraising; and gift certificates were awarded during an in-house raffle.
"I'm so proud of our team who has worked tirelessly the past few months to not only keep our residents safe and healthy, but to continue honoring and prioritizing our seniors," says Michele Lyon, Executive Director of Palm Bay Memory Care.
