Paczki Time: Fat Tuesday is March 1, which means it’s paczki time. For those who may not be familiar with the term, paczki (pronounced poonch key) aren’t just any old donuts. This popular Polish pastry is made from a rich, sweet yeast dough made from eggs, butter and milk. They can be filled with a variety of things including fruit fillings, jelly, lemon and more, and are often topped with powdered sugar.
They are a Mardi Gras specialty in many bakeries in the Parma region. If you’ve never tried one, there’s no better time than the present. But you might want to pre-order as they tend to sell out quickly.
Caregiver corner: the Cleveland Area Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association launched a new Facebook series to help caregivers of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
The Facebook Caregiver Corner series is a lunchtime program focused on a series of topics with a Q&A session for caregivers to get details, tips and tricks on topics ranging from how to take care of yourself as a caregiver, how to approach food and nutrition for your loved one and tips for traveling with your loved one. Free sessions are broadcast at noon on the last Monday of each month at noon on the Facebook page.
The next Caregiver Corner will be at noon on February 28.
The Caregiver Corner series complements the association’s regular educational programs. These sessions, delivered by videoconference, often last an hour. Rebecca Hall, program director for the Cleveland Area Alzheimer’s Association, said the Caregiver Corner Facebook series gives caregivers a shorter educational session — lasting about 15 to 20 minutes — with greater opportunity for them to share immediate problems.
Due to COVID-19, unpaid caregivers are spending more time with loved ones and possibly more time providing direct care. Caregivers of Alzheimer’s disease report feeling isolated, alone and overwhelmed.
Caregivers can also contact the Cleveland Chapter during business hours at 216-342-5556, or through the 24/7 helpline at 800-272-3900.
