Yolo Alzheimer’s Cafe – February 18, 2017

Home Care in Sacramento CA

February’s Edition of the Yolo Alzheimer’s Café was a blast! This month’s theme was Mardi Gras and we celebrated in a big way. We kicked the party off by sharing personal memories and facts Home-Care-in-Sacramento-CAabout Mardi Gras. For example, did you know that Mardi Gras originated in Mobile, Alabama? That’s right, even though most people associate Mardi Gas with New Orleans, Mobile, Alabama, began holding the famous festival beginning in 1703. This was 15 years before the festival began in Louisiana.

Mardi Gras is a based on a French Catholic tradition and is a city-wide holday in Mobile where even the schools close down to celebrate! After strolling down memory lane, participants made their own Mardi Gras mask complete with sparkling sequins and feathers. We also had fun bouncing ping pong balls into buckets for the most points. Prizes were given to both the winners of the game and for the masks that were judged to be most creative & festive.

While the Café is a free monthly social gathering for caregivers & family members with Alzheimer’s, we also welcome all community members to join us to meet new friends, enjoy music, fun activities & refreshments! We are also looking for more companies or organizations to join us in sponsoring or also for volunteers.

Jason Wu, President

President at ApexCare
I first became aware of the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease ten years ago when my grandmother was diagnosed with this disease.I saw firsthand how critical it was to have a loving family or caregiver to ensure my grandmother’s safety and daily well-being.My grandmother was fortunate enough to have close family members who cared for her as her Alzheimer’s disease progressed.

Since then, I have had a strong interest in helping and supporting our senior community as they age and are unable to care for themselves.Coming from a family of physicians, I am excited to be involved in the medical community by providing the highest levels of non-clinical in-home care to our clients and their families.With my work experience, I firmly believe that ApexCare can touch many lives and have a great impact on our local senior community.

Prior to joining ApexCare, I worked in a wide variety of industries and have owned multiple businesses ranging from construction to mortgage banking.Outside of work, I am an active youth soccer and basketball coach, having coached recreational soccer for over 8 years and elementary school basketball for over 4 years.I graduated with a BS in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and received a Masters of Management degree from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.My career has been focused on building great organizations that deliver the highest absolute levels of service to our clients.I look forward to continuing this passion with ApexCare.
