Over 250 attend educational breakfast in support of Elant; video showcases Elant’s mission
GOSHEN, N.Y. (July 1, 2014) — Elant hosted its annual Community Breakfast on May 20 at Anthony’s Pier 9 in New Windsor. The event featured heartwarming and insightful testimonials from family members of Elant residents, a presentation on aging, memory loss and dementia led by Dr. James E. Galvin, M.P.H., and the launch of Elant’s new video, designed to bring Elant and the people it serves into the homes and hearts of community members who have not yet experienced Elant firsthand.
“Elant is so much more than a skilled nursing facility, short-term rehab center, adult home and the many other services we provide,” said Melissa McCoy, Elant’s Director of Corporate Initiatives. “We are defined by the people we serve, the lives we enhance and the families we help. Who better to tell the story of Elant than those who have been impacted by our services? The testimonials from family members and residents are so moving, and we’re grateful for their willingness to share their stories, for Dr. Galvin taking the time to educate the community on the differences between aging, memory loss and dementia, for everyone who attended the breakfast to show their support of our mission, and for our sponsors who made this wonderful event possible.”
The Elant Community Breakfast was sponsored by Central Hudson, Caretech Group, Catania, Mahon, Milligram & Rider, PLLC, Focus Media, Fox Radio, Mobile Life Support Services, Inc. Rose & Kiernan, Inc.; Hudson Valley Investment Advisors, Inc.; Jacobowitz & Gubits; MidHudson Valley Federal Credit Union; O’Connor Davies and Pepsi of the Hudson Valley.
