Today’s Front Line Hero is Luthercare, whose campus participated in the Lancaster Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday.
Luthercare is strongly rooted in the Lutheran commitment to serve, and provides high-quality senior living communities, and early learning programs for children in Lancaster and Lebanon counties in Pennsylvania. From independent living to skilled nursing to home care, Luthercare offers comprehensive options for seniors, as well as offering a safe, nurturing environment that prepares children to be successful students. Luthercare proudly celebrates it Lutheran heritage, while welcoming interfaith engagement to make a positive impact on the community.
Though many events across the United States have been forced to cancel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Luthercare is ensuring its community participates in events that can be done safely. Luthercare served as a Select Sponsor for the Lancaster Walk to End Alzheimer’s that occurred this past Saturday, and encouraged its residents to participate. To prevent community spread of the COVID-19 virus, the walk was not held at a central location, but walkers wore their purple t-shirts associated with the event, and chose unique routes across Lancaster county. The sidewalks, tracks, and trails throughout Lancaster were purple as the walkers worked to raise funds and awareness for the fight to end Alzheimer’s. Walkers took different routes throughout the county, but were united with the same goal: a world without dementia.
Thank you to Luthercare for helping seniors stay active through the COVID-19 pandemic, and supporting important causes in your community!
