The Eddy serves as a community partner with the Alzheimer’s Association of Northeastern NY and the organizations work together year-round to provide a wide range of services to those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, as well as their families and caregivers.
The Eddy was a proud to sponsor The Promise Garden for the fifth year. The Promise Garden is an important part of the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, both in the opening ceremony and the Walk itself. Walkers are given a flower that indicates their connection to Alzheimer’s disease – whether they have Alzheimer’s or dementia, have lost a loved one to the disease, are a caregiver for someone with the disease, or support the goal of a world without Alzheimer’s. The Promise Garden allows participants to raise flowers representing a promise to remember, honor, care, and fight for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia.
