The Capital Region’s leading provider of senior care and services, The Eddy, was honored as a “Corporate Philanthropist of the Year” by the Alzheimer’s Association of Northeastern New York.
The association recognized the Eddy on May 5 at the annual An Evening to End Alzheimer’s Gala, held at the Albany Capital Center.
The award presented to the Eddy included original art from a resident of Eddy Hawthrone Ridge, who is living with Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally, U.S. Representative Paul Tonko presented the Eddy with a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition.
Jess Flynn, of Eddy DayBreak Adult Day Services, accepted the award on behalf of the Eddy. Also in attendance representing the Eddy were Caitlin St. George of the Eddy Visiting Nurse Association, Deb Buzanowski of Eddy Alzheimer’s Services, Ruth Ormsby of Eddy Hawthrone Ridge/Marjorie Doyle Rockwell Center, and Beth Burdgick of the Glen Eddy.
For years, the Eddy has been a key sponsor and supporter of the Capital Region Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Siena College. The Eddy and the Alzheimer’s Association of Northeastern New York also collaborate on several care and support initiatives including the Alzheimer’s Association’s Caregiver’s Conference, Memories in the Making, and the New York State Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Initiative.
