This past weekend marked the 2015 Walk to End Alzheimer’s in the Richmond region and Spring Arbor of Salisbury and Spring Arbor of Richmond had a strong group of walkers attend this year! Despite the rain, many residents and community members took part in the two mile walk and dozens more donated to the team over the past few months. Both senior living communities also spearheaded multiple fundraisers throughout the year to help raise funds towards their team. As a result, both teams raised a combined total of more than $1,500, which exceeded their goal of $1,000 by 50 percent! All of the funds will go towards Alzheimer’s Disease research. Thank you so much for all of the effort and support from our amazing team members. Congratulations!
Walks are held throughout the country and all of our Spring Arbor communities participate in these meaningful events. According to the 2015 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures by the Alzheimer’s Association, the number of Americans with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia is estimated to soar to 7.1 million by 2025, a 40 percent increase from the 5.1 million affected this year. HHHunt and our Spring Arbor communities are proud to support the Alzheimer’s Association and remain optimistic that expanded research will help identify new approaches and solutions for Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
We understand the skills and compassion needed to serve and support those with Alzheimer’s and their families. Our Spring Arbor team members are honored that they have the opportunity to care for our residents and we have created a community that is really more of an extension of family, where caring professionals are here to lend a helping hand. Our amenities and daily activities support the needs of our residents and help them maintain a high quality and healthy lifestyle. Additionally, the Spring Arbor “Cottage” concept is governed by four “Cornerstones of Care” which incorporate a unique blend of architecture, programs, and specially trained staff to provide an unmatched level of respect and care for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Our residents enjoy the respect and dignity they deserve, and their loved ones value the peace of mind knowing that we provide unparalleled care.
At HHHunt, we believe it’s how you live that matters and our philosophy extends through every phase and season of
life. We’re so proud of our Spring Arbor team members and residents for fulfilling this mission each day. Learn more about Spring Arbor and the Cottages by visiting our website. We also encourage you to visit the Alzheimer’s Association and consider supporting this incredible and worthwhile cause.
