The ARK provides hope and relief to families with loved ones living with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory disorders. We strive to preserve dignity, respect individual self worth, and help people with memory problems continue to be a part of their community. You are the reason we exist! Our caregivers are as much a priority as the person with the disease. Join our family!
