It was becoming increasingly challenging to take care of her at home … their warm, concerned, caring welcome gave us all hope. Their understanding of our situation, their empathy and their genuine love of seniors was apparent from the moment we walked into the center. They gave us advice, offered support groups and referrals, and most importantly invited our mother to attend the center. Attending the program brings joy to my mother. We have gone to observe while she is there and she smiles, dances, exercises. For a few hours, a few days a week, she is in a stimulating environment and is engaged with people who really enjoy her and make her feel that she belongs. Nothing can stop the steady, slow devastating Alzheimer’s demise but we believe my mother’s time at the program has helped its impeding progression.
