Edinburgh nurse gets grant to attend seminar


Follow The Republic:


An Edinburgh nurse and entrepreneur will attend a two-day business seminar thanks to Sam’s Club and the Service Corps of Retired Executives.

Bonnie Shehan, a nurse for 23 years, a year ago launched AlzSafe, a home-based business that sells kits that help families enhance the safety of loved ones who have dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. The kit includes oven-door locks and motion sensors that automatically switch on lights to prevent patients from stumbling in the dark.

Shehan is one of 102 business owners across the nation to benefit from the 2012 Sam’s Club Giving Program, in which Sam’s has become partners with SCORE to provide more than $500,000 in grants, training and supplies. Shehan will attend a two-day training seminar in Dallas in January and receive a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card to purchase business supplies.

Information about AlzSafe: alzsafe.org or 526-5646.
