Veteran Memory Care
A study conducted by NIH (National Institute of Health) found that veterans are twice as likely to develop dementia. Aside from the normal aging process, traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder make veterans more vulnerable to dementia than the general population.
To help veterans and their families, we created a guide to memory care for veterans. This resource goes over dementia in detail and shares treatment options as well as available VA programs and resources.
You can view the guide here: https://www.memorycare.com/veterans/.
BIG WOODS CEMETERY
NOTICE: The Big Woods Cemetery walk scheduled for October 15th has been cancelled.
BIG WOODS CEMETERY, located on Eola Road just south of Butterfield Rd, is maintained by Winfield Township.
This historic cemetery is the resting place of Israel Warner, who joined the Revolutionary War at age 9 (1777) as a messenger boy and scout until the end of the War in 1783. His father was Seth Warner, co-founder of the famous Green Mountain Boys, with Ethan Allen. Seth is famous for his role in winning the Battle of Bennington, and a statue of him is located next to the monument to the Battle of Bennington. In 1777, Israel Warner carried an important message from his father, a Colonel, to General Stark galloping at top speed during the Battle of Bennington.
Israel is buried at Big Woods Cemetery, along with his daughter, her husband, and two of her children, both boys and who both died in the Civil War.
We also have seven other veterans from the Civil War, one from the Black Hawk Indian War, two from World War I, and four from World War II.
