Meadowlark is alive. That was obvious from the moment we walked in the door.

One of the greatest strengths of Meadowlark Hills is the warm community that exists here. I believe that a healthy community is able to gain information about relevant issues, respond to change, and act in a way reflective of the values it holds. Earlier this month, I attended a training session about Alzheimer’s disease and want to share some of the information I learned with you, so that we can better care for each other and be an even stronger community.

The Parkinson’s Program of Manhattan at Meadowlark Hills was awarded a grant from the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation to help fund an educational opportunity for those affected by Parkinson’s disease. The Foundation is providing the program $1,500, which will be used towards expenses for a Parkinson’s Educational Symposium for the Flint Hills region. The purpose of such an event is to educate those with Parkinson’s disease and their loved ones, and to promote awareness of the prevalence of the disease and effective interventions.
