Help in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease

Girl with elderly man

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) More adults are finding themselves part of the “sandwich generation,” raising their children while also caring for aging parents or grandparents. When an older person in our lives is diagnosed with a disease that steals their memory, developing a care plan can become even more challenging. Luckily, the great team at MapleCreek provides an incredible solution.

The Woods of MapleCreek is home to seniors who need assistance with everyday activities. It offers specialized, personal attention from bathing and personal care to medical administration. Residents and families work together with the staff and the resident’s doctors to make sure their needs are being met.

The Lodge of MapleCreek offers more consistent nursing care, with comprehensive specialty programs in memory care.

MapleCreek works with the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Michigan. Their biggest event of the fall is the Walk to End Alzheimer’s Disease on Saturday, September 13 at Millennium Park. Registration starts at 9 a.m. with a ceremony at 10 a.m. The walk starts at 10:15 a.m. You can register on their website or get help with your questions about Alzheimer’s disease any time by calling their toll free helpline at 800-272-3900.

The folks at MapleCreek are also available to share more about their living environment and will happily offer you a tour. Just give them a call at (616) 452-5900 or visit their website to learn more about them and the team at Lutheran Social Services of Michigan.
