As one of the original Memory Care communities in Thurston county, Roo Lan has been active in promoting Alzheimer’s awareness and research for decades. This is why we’re such a strong partner of the South Sound Alzheimer’s Council (SSAC) and everything they do to educate and assist families coping with a loved one recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. This includes being a sponsor of the SSAC’s annual Alzheimer’s walk on Sunday, September 17th.
The notoriously fickle Fall weather meant the event was wetter than 2016’s but did nothing to impinge on this community’s support for Alzheimer’s Awareness. Hundred’s showed up to make the journey around Capitol Lake, plant a pinwheel in the remembrance garden, and donate to the cause. Over $7,000 was raised to help SSAC continue to assist families struggling with Alzheimer’s and Roo Lan is proud to have been a part of it.
