Walk to End Alzheimer’s National Team

Alzheimer’s Disease is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts at Senior Living Communities. Each day our teams work to provide compassionate, person-centered care for those who have and are affected by Alzheimer’s Disease and different forms of dementia. Senior Living Communities is registered as a National Team for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, dedicated with a fundraising goal of $100,000 per year. All 15 communities at SLC are registered to participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s and each one hosts a multitude of fundraising events throughout the year. From car washes and grand galas to golf tournaments and raffles, there’s a way for everyone to participate in fundraising for this cause.
