San Carlos Elms Walks to Support the End of Alzheimer's

This is The San Carlos Elms Group that walked this year to support The Memory Walk and the End of Alzheimer's and Dementia.
This year at the walk we carried flowers each color flower represented something different;
Yellow: you were supporting or caring for someone with Alzheimer's
Purple: you lost someone to Alzheimer's or Dementia
Orange: you support the cause and vision of a world with out Alzheimer's
Blue: you had Alzheimer's or Dementia

This year The Elms had additional support from Girl Scout Troop 393 & 824. They made posters with our residents photos on it from our memory care and walked for them.

Showing their support and love for The Elms the staff received the logo painted on their faces.

The Staff did a great job walking the 3 miles especially with the banner. We did a good job at staying together this year!!!

Executive Director Scott Evans and Director of Food Service Dave Kelly did a great job fielding questions and handing out coffee.
