A Day of Caring

A Day of Caring

In celebration of Black History Month Wake Forest Baptist Health, AARP, the Winston-Salem Urban League and Gdavis Productions held A Day of Caring. The event is an an extension of the Urban League's Health and Wellness Initiatives, which are designed to provide the information and resources needed to improve the quality of health in our community.

The Day included free health screenings and speakers on health topics such as advanced directives, the principles to healthy living, symptoms of Alzheimer's, caring for the caregiver and heart disease.

The culminating event featured an original production of "Momma's Girls". This play portrays the struggles of an African-American family when five sisters are forced to assume the role of caregivers. The play vividly demonstrates the devastating impact of Alzheimer's disease on families and how the responsibility of caregiving causes conflict within families. It also demonstrates how cooperation and team work among siblings eases tensions of caregivers. The production has garnered national acclaim and endorsement by AARP and has been shown around the country.
