"Walk for Alzheimer's" at Seasons Amherstburg raises $665

Walk for Alzheimers participants.

Residents and staff at Seasons Amherstburg are doing their part to assist with those living with Alzheimer’s Disease.


The local retirement community presented its annual “Walk for Alzheimer’s” last Wednesday afternoon. The event raised $665 for the Alzheimer’s Society of Windsor-Essex County.


“This is a yearly tradition for us,” explained Jenn Lauzon, fun manager at Seasons Amherstburg.


Lauzon pointed out they held a “Coffee Break” for the Alzheimer’s Society in the morning as well as a bake sale. The walk was conducted during the afternoon, with residents and staff walking around the Front Road South retirement home.

“We have residents, staff, managers and families out today,” Lauzon said during last Wednesday’s walk.


There are residents who are impacted by Alzheimer’s Disease who live at Season’s Amherstburg and Lauzon stated they live in the home’s “Memory Care Home” wing.


“It’s important to honour them,” said Lauzon.


The Memory Care wing accommodates about 25 residents.


“That is for residents who need a little more one-on-one care,” she said.

In all, Seasons Amherstburg has approximately 120 residents.


Seasons Amherstburg holds a walk or some sort of event for Alzheimer’s every May. Lauzon said an event has been held for each of her 11 years there, most of them being a walk. She said the event went virtual during the COVID-19 pandemic but they are glad health restrictions are behind them and the in-person walk has resumed.


The main IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s is May 26 at the Ford Test Track, located at 3001 Seminole St. in Windsor. Registration is at 8:30 a.m. and the walk gets underway at 10:30 a.m. There will also be food, fire trucks, yoga, face painting and a scavenger hunt at this Sunday morning’s event.
