or through an app on their phone. We will be working with CentraCare to complete the pilot for this program.
Furthermore, Miles for Memories will be piloting a program initially targeting those from the early to
late stages of dementia at Ganton Senior Commmunities. The specially designed bracelet will initially offer an emergency details housed in the bracelet. Emergency responders will then be able to access emergency contact information when found. This ID Bracelet and Recovery Program will be brought county- wide by partnering with Life Care Ambulance and the county Fire Departments. The bracelet, when utilized to its fullest capacity, will also allow for additional medical or other emergency information to be stored and accessed by emergency personnel. The ease in updating this information by personal computer or by an app will also allow for greater ease in its use for family members.
Our next bit of technology
takes a different direction through the launching of our Melodious Memories Music Program – music is another stimulus that has been found to be beneficial in reaching the dementia patient. This program will launch at Evergreen in 2017, and then move countywide. The dance and large movement program, which combines both movement and music, will be coming after that and will launch at Calhoun County Medical Care Facility.
The funding for some of our
programs comes, in part, through a variety of annual events such as the Ganton Golf Outing, the Rock-A- Thon at Calhoun County Medical Care Facility, the Maplewood of Marshall Stroll, and the Murder Mystery Event at NorthPointe Woods. We also have our Main Event, which will be a walk/stroll celebration in Downtown Battle Creek. Many living with dementia and their families take part in this event held this year on September 16. And in partnership with the City of Battle Creek, we will be hosting a Tailgate event on September 30.
Dollars raised are used to cre- ate local programming for both the patient and the caregiver as well as to support Alzheimer’s research. Additional funds come from donations and sponsors for our main events, as well as grants.
In coming months we will be sharing more information about Alzheimer’s and other dementias – tips for recognizing the disease and the importance of early diagnosis as well as caring for loved ones
at home and ideas for prolonging the comfort of the patient and the family. For additional information please visit our Miles for Memories Facebook page, reach out to any of our volunteers, or call us at (269) 979-1412 ext. 305.
