Epstein, The Buffalo News After nearly two years of uncertainty, Weinberg Campus agreed Wednesday to sell the majority of its main nursing home and senior care complex in Amherst to Post Acute Partners, the operators of Elderwood. The two companies earlier in the day signed a formal sale agreement. Post Acute will take over and continue to operate the Weinberg facilities at 2700 North Forest Road as part of its Elderwood network. The price was not disclosed.

Sunday Spectator Inaugural event raises local awareness by Jason Jordan NORTH HORNELL - Walk a mile in the shoes of someone living with Alzheimer's Disease, those of his or her caregivers, or his or her friends and family.

Tracey Stillman, assistant administrator of guest relations at Elderwood, talked about why it was important to find local allies in the cause. "There are people here with this disease, we see it every day...
