Healthcare Worker Talks Walk To End Alzheimer's

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - The Walk to End Alzheimer's takes place later this month, so to get ready, we're featuring individuals who have been impacted by the disease throughout the month of October.

This week, we spoke to a member of one of the eastern shore's highest grossing teams, The Salisbury Genesis Healthcare team.

Salisbury Genesis cares for a number of people suffering from various stages of Alzheimer's and dementia, Abby Portell says she's been involved for over five years.

"You have individuals that are with early onset right now that are starting in their 50s, which for me is extremely scary," says Abby Portell, "so, it's very very important for medical management, medications, testing, and just trying to find a way to slow it down and cure it."

The Walk to End Alzheimer's takes place on October 26th, with registration starting at 9 AM.
