Thanks for taking the time out of your day to check out our September Newsletter! We have been busy bees at the Vineyard office. We’re cooking up lots of fun events and activities for this month that we can’t wait to share with the Henderson community! 

When you’re done exploring the events—and adding them to your calendar—don’t forget to scroll down for a fun recap on what the Vineyard tribe was up to this past month. 

September Events Calendar 

Fundraising FriYAYs! – Every Friday 

Vineyard Fundraising FriYAYs

Having fun at one of last month’s Fundraising FriYAYs.

Start off your weekend by spreading a little good! Every week, we host Fundraising FriYAYs at Vineyard Leasing Office! Community members can stop by and purchase a variety of local homemade products, themed baskets, crafts, and baked goods. We have unique packages from $10 and up! All proceeds go to Alzheimers and Parkinson’s organizations and charities. Awareness for both Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s is a cause important to our memory care community.

  • Every Friday, from 9am-5pm, at the Leasing Office 

Lunch & Learn – September 11 

Have lunch with us on Wednesday, September 11th and learn about the challenging behaviors associated with dementia. We’ll also provide actionable tips and strategies to help caregivers or family members of those with dementia.

VH_September Newsletter Virtual Dementia Training

A session from last month’s Virtual Dementia Training.

Each month we host an afternoon of Virtual Dementia Tours. This free interactive session helps you understand the unique challenges faced by those living with dementia. We have limited spots available, and we fill up every month, so be sure to sign up ASAP! 

  • Tuesday, September 24, from 10am-12pm 
  • Limited spots available; please contact us to RSVP 

Vineyard Support Group – September 26

Support groups traditionally only include caregivers and family members, but not the person suffering from dementia or Alzheimers. The Vineyard support group is disrupting that old model. We welcome caregivers, family members, as well as those with memory-related conditions. 

We partner with both UNLV and Touro University, with LCSW and OT department students on-site to moderate the session, engage with participants, and offer further expertise.

Please note that we aim to keep the session intimate and productive, so we have a limited number of spots available. 

  • Thursday, September 26th, 2pm-3pm at the Leasing Office 
  • Space is limited; please contact us to RSVP, or do so on Facebook

Walk a Mile in My Shoes – September 28

Our partner, the Las Vegas Rescue Mission, provides safe shelter, meals, long-term rehabilitation programs, counseling, and encouragement to help our neighbors escape homelessness. They encourage supporters to take part in a charity walk, where they walk a mile in the shoes of a homeless individual to understand their journey. 

We are proud to participate in the Walk a Mile event this year and encourage our community members to do the same!
