People Inc.'s Seniors Unlimited is the only program of its kind in the City of Buffalo that provides respite for caregivers of individuals with Alzheimers, Parkinsons disease, stroke and other related memory loss. In a safe, comfortable environment participants are involved in a variety of activities designed to foster self-esteem, maintain social and daily living skills, exercise the body and stimulate the mind. Activities include exercise, art, crafts, music, intergenerational program, community outings and interaction with peers. Collaborations like this provide an opportunity to promote awareness, diversity, and information sharing with the community. The day will be devoted to educating, raising awareness about individuals with special needs, community living/working together, and developing new friendships. It is a way to have fun socialization, make friends, share experiences and make a global impact, right here in Western New York. In addition, the youth will be asked to take part in raising the consciousness of the community and their peers by pledging their support and stop the offensive use of the "R-word - retard(ed)" in casual conversation.
