Success Story
Cece, Memory Minders

"Mom looks so forward to Mondays and Fridays - her Memory Minders days. Those are the two days a week that I don't worry about her. Knowing The Dale Association is picking her up and taking such good care of her gives me the peace of mind I need to go to work. When she gets home she is beaming with all the fun she's had. She especially loved making jam - 'just like old times', she said. Mom's made friends there who don't judge her but instead understand what she's going through with her memory loss. I just love the staff and volunteers at The Dale Association. I don't know what we would have done without it"

- Evelyn
