On a sunny day this past September, hundreds and hundreds of walkers laced up their sneakers and got ready to get moving for the 20th Walk for Wildwood. The Walk for Wildwood that started in 1998 as an idea of a few staff at Wildwood has know grown into an anticipated yearly event that raises important funds for Wildwood.

The holidays are a fun and exciting time of the year; however, they can also be very stressful.  Keep the following tips from our partners at Jaeger and Flynn in mind when navigating through the holidays to help minimize the effects of stress on your plans.

This year Wildwood Programs was invited, along with the Center for Disability Services, to partner with Eddy Alzheimer’s Services by their Education Specialist, Jennifer Harvey, MSW, CDP.  This opportunity to have a working collaboration in a 3 year grant funded program is exciting. The goal of the program is to teach and empower Wildwood staff to increase their knowledge of Alzheimer’s Dementia, increase their ability to recognize the signs and symptoms of dementia in people with Intellectual Developmental Disabilities and to develop and deliver a person-centered approach to both maintain each person’s independence and to cope with their changing abilities.

Over the last year, Wildwood staff at all levels began work on the organization’s next strategic plan. A strategic plan is a written guide of the direction that the organization intends to take in the next few years. It involves examining the current environment for threats and opportunities before developing a plan to address the future.
