Here is what organizers have to say:
In continued support of the Northwest Connecticut Walk to End Alzheimer’s,
Lime Rock Park and Alzheimer’s Association have partnered together to host
a road rally! The Drive will take place on November 14th and leave Lime
Rock Park promptly at 9 am. It will drive through the towns of Falls
Village, North Canaan, Salisbury, Lakeville, and Sharon. Key locations for
drive-bys will include Noble Horizons, Sharon Health Care Center, and
Sharon Hospital. November is particularly symbolic as it is National
People will be using their own cars which they will decorate with messages
of gratitude and encouragement for caregivers and those dealing with
Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Everyone will be abiding by all
traffic regulations and will not require intersections to be blocked. Cars
in the procession will be observing speed limits, stopping at stop
signs/lights, yielding to merging vehicles, and staying a safe distance
from the car ahead.
There is a donation of $50 to participate in this drive. Go to

Also, Please join us on *November 18th from 10:30am-12noon* for “Culturally
Responsive Dementia Care at the End of Life”.
Perceptions of “a good death” and end of life care can differ
significantly across cultural groups. Join us as we discuss strategies and
guiding principles for providing culturally responsive care for diverse
patients and families living with dementia.
