Alzheimer’s Association of the Carolinas

Posted on Friday, March 7th, 2008.

Kemba Bloodworth and Jenna Weiss-Berman were welcomed to the Alzheimer’s Association of the Carolinas. The staff provided them with an ideal, quiet place for recording conversations and databasing. Check out our nifty “quiet” signs.

While facilitating conversations, Kemba Bloodworth met Sylvia Fiano and Ann Copeland. Sylvia has been coping with memory loss through art. The first time she picked up a paintbrush was because of an association staff member’s encouragement. She donates most of her work to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association of the Carolinas and has yet to put the paintbrush down. A staff member gave Kemba and Jenna a tour of the association. A few pieces of Sylvia’s art work were displayed on their walls. Check out her art work!
