As an Alzheimer’s specialty assisted living place, AutumnGrove is particularly vested in making this a great walk, with tons of donations to help cure Alzheimer’s. Until that time, they will continue to provide loving care to those with the debilitating disease. Cynthia, an individual with a mother in their care said, "I can tell that all of mom's caregivers truly care about my mom's comfort level. They express heartfelt concern when that's appropriate but what I love the most is that they celebrate the small improvements and wonderful moments when Mom really surprises us with her wonderful smile and witty sayings and facial expressions.”
