Summerhill Assisted Living Raises $4K for Alzheimers

PETERBOROUGH, N.H. — Residents of Summerhill Assisted Living & Memory Care Community baked and sold more than 600 pies in 2018, totaling more than $4,000; the money was contributed to the Alzheimer’s Association. After participating in the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Keene five years ago, residents ramped up their pie-baking efforts to help an organization dedicated to eliminating Alzheimer’s disease and providing support to those affected by it. The pies are purchased by family members, staff and community neighbors. “We appreciate all those who’ve supported our residents’ pie-baking to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association,” said executive director, Mary Pat Jackson. Summerhill Assisted Living offers a supportive environment for individuals with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, and other residents who need the reassurance of having someone nearby. At all levels of care, it provides comfortable and secure assisted living options, allowing residents to enjoy the independence and privacy they deserve while receiving a wide range of services provided by skilled and caring staff.
