Day Services, in honor of her mom, Mary Alice Bendolph, who lived with

The mission of Toys for Alzheimer’s is to distribute free cognitively stimulating and engaging toys to persons living with Alzheimer’s and related Dementias.
Royal Adult Day envisions a community that fully embraces the needs of persons living with Alzheimer’s and allows them to continue living a life they love.
“People with dementia have a right to continue living a life they love.”
