Walking to End Alzheimer's!


We are so proud of our team members and residents who give their time each year to raise money for the Alzheimer's Association. This is the largest event in the world to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research asnd thousands participate. We love to see our teams and residents out making a difference in their communities.

In addition to participating in The Walk events, our communities held fabulous fundraisers including a classic car show, spaghetti dinner and a Hawaiian luau.

Our teams were also on hand to share information and support this worthy cause. 

We love seeing our team members and residents racing their way to the finish line sporting purple to support the Alzheimer's Association. 

Our community in Santa Maria (CA) blew us away by single handedly raising over $10,000, landing them in first place for The Walk in their community. Their team also hosted a tasty breakfast burrito fundraiser, with over 450 participants and volunteers.

Thank you to all our residents and team members that participated in this great cause!
