Local Alzheimer’s services awareness focus of day-long event in Cochrane

Awareness of services available in Cochrane related to Alzheimer’s Disease is the focus of an event at the Commando Pavilion on Saturday, September 10th.

Yvette Larabee chairs the ten-member Cochrane Alzheimer Committee. She says you can consult several related agencies that will be there, between eleven and four.

“They can listen to music,” Larabee points out. “There’ll be a barbecue by Bill Pudim. So people can just go in and check out what we are offered in Cochrane, as far as information and services.”

There will also be a silent auction on a donated quilt, painting and lantern. Proceeds go towards activity sensory supplies for the Villa Minto long-term care home.

“We hope to have a lot of people come in and see us and find out what is available to help people in Cochrane,” Larabee concludes.

This painting by Rachelle Noland is in the silent action on Sept. 10 with a $100.00 reserve bid. (Photo supplied)
