Pat Etienne, resident at The Village of Bedford Walk, was recently featured in an article by the Columbia Missourian for how she confidently lives her life while having Alzheimer’s.

Pat was diagnosed with early-stage Alzheimer’s seven years ago, and ever since, has been determined to live a full, determined life despite her diagnosis. Not only does Pat lead a very active social life at The Village of Bedford Walk, but she also uses her vigor to volunteer. She actively advocates for funding and research for the Alzheimer’s Association, as well as volunteering for the Greater Foundation of Women’s Clubs, the League of Women Voters and the Columbia Newcomers Club

We are continually inspired and impressed with Pat and are so lucky to have her in our family at The Village of Bedford Walk!

The Village of Bedford Walk Supports Pascale’s Pals

Kelly Buchheit, Laura Roeder, Kalyn Meyer, Stephanie Piester and Jamie Cooper enjoyed their night celebrating Pascale’s Pals.

On Friday, March 9, 2018, representatives from The Village of Bedford Walk attended a dinner and auction to benefit Pascale’s Pals, a charity organization that benefits children and families staying at the MU Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Columbia, Missouri.

This year was the 20th anniversary of the event, and the tickets were sold out. The silent auction featured an assortment of items donated by local businesses, paintings from local arts and signed sports memorabilia. The live auction included various vacations, sporting and musical event tickets and two puppies. The puppies raised $5,000 each for the charity!

The Village of Bedford Walk was a Gold Sponsor of the event and had a great time celebrating and showing their support.

Working to Prevent Dementia

Alzheimers.net recently published an article discussing a new study that recognizes the power of lifestyle choices in dementia prevention.

The article discusses that over one-third of all dementia cases may be preventable due to positive lifestyle choices. Encouraging public health strategies, such as regular exercise, protecting hearing and staying in school, can have large impacts on the numbers of people afflicted with dementia.

In their study, the researchers found that avoiding the below risk factors would reduce the global prevalence of dementia by 35 percent.

  • Discontinuing education before the age of 15
  • Untreated hearing loss in middle age
  • Smoking after the age of 65
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Depression
  • Physical inactivity
  • Social isolation
  • Diabetes in adults over 65

While there are many risk factors related to dementia that researchers are still trying to understand, they believe that working on reducing the known risk factors is a good start to prevention.
