With this event, Alzheimer's Services Center is dedicated to connecting Clayton County Seniors that suffer from Alzheimer's Disease or any other related dementia to adequate Nutrition and essential needs specifically for this Thanksgiving holiday.
About Alzheimer's Services Center: The Alzheimer's Services Center was organized by its' founder, the late Mrs. Janice A. Coye. Mrs. Coye started operations in a three-room building in 1990. After relocating to several other facilities, soliciting support by way of donations, land, state and federal grants, she was able to realize her dream and made the final move into a newly constructed 12,000 square foot building in June 2010. The new Center has three separate activity rooms, a barber and beauty salon, a separate, fully equipped kitchen for the clients to use, an enclosed courtyard with benches, a beautiful fountain, and an outside walking trail. http://asc-ga.org
