Westborough – The Alzheimer’s Association annual “The Longest Day” will be commemorated Wednesday, June 21 at the Boroughs Family Branch of the YMCA Central Mass.
June 21, the first day of summer, is also the longest day of the year. As such, the association holds this event as a way to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease.
The Residence at Orchard Grove, a new senior assisted living facility that will open in Shrewsbury this fall, will also be participating in the event with a virtual dementia demonstration, “A Walk in Their Shoes.” This display will help people to get a glimpse of what it’s like to have Alzheimer’s disease and the challenges that those who have it face each day.
The Boroughs Family Branch of the YMCA Central Mass. is located at 4 Valente Drive, Westborough.
