Buffalo’s industrial past and former prosperity left an
ugly legacy: brownfields. The crumbling of industry,
in particular the closing of many steel plants, led to the
abandonment of properties, many with environmental
contaminants. If brownfield sites are contaminated,
can the land be used again? What are the obstacles
to brownfield remediation and development?

Respite Care
It is our goal to provide a Respite Care program at the Clarence Senior Center beginning in the Fall of 2015.
The Respite Care program will give caregivers an opportunity to have a break from caregiving tasks while
providing the opportunity for individuals with mild to moderate dementia to have a break from their daily
routine by participating in enjoyable activities in a safe, structured, and supportive environment. We are
seeking volunteers to assist in the program. The program will be scheduled on the second Monday of each
month from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
Volunteers will be provided with training through the Alzheimer’s
Association. Please complete the form provided below and return to our office if you are interested in
becoming a volunteer. For further information about the program, please contact Karla @ 633-5138.
