Introducing Chad Henning: Shelby County Walk to End Alzheimer’s Event Chair

Chad Henning has been part of the Shelby County Walk to End Alzheimer’s® ever since he began working at Elmwood of New Bremen. While in his role at Elmwood, he’s witnessed all of the emotions associated with a dementia diagnosis. Chad said, “I see the smiles, laughter, accomplishments, tears, aggravation and struggles daily on the faces of individuals with dementia, family members and caregivers.  I walk for this growing population that is,  unfortunately, living with all those mixed emotions and to help bring more awareness.”

Chad has been on the Walk committee for the last three years and has supported the Walk in multiple ways including chairing logistics and registration. He enjoys registration because it gives him a chance to see all of the Walkers and understand why they Walk to End Alzheimer’s.  

 
As someone who works with people living with dementia and their loved ones, his advice is to care for the person as they are.  Everyone’s journey is different, but every person with dementia needs to be treated with dignity and supported in their own unique way. 
 
Chad is ready to help make 2019 the best year yet and invites anyone who is interested in being part of the committee to join him. Chad said, “We work hard, but  have a lot of fun while planning the Shelby County Walk to End Alzheimer’s.”
 
If anyone has questions about the Walk or would like to join the committee, contact Maire Reynolds, Walk Coordinator at mareynolds@alz.org or 937.610.7006.
