June is a very special month for our community! This month, we come together to commemorate Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. We’ve been busy these last few weeks, so we’d like to remind you just how important Alzheimer’s Awareness Month is to us.
There are so many ways you can get involved. So while it’s always good to look at what groups like the Alzheimer’s Association are doing, remember to involve yourself with us here in the community. Together we make great strides every day in our fight against Alzheimer’s.
Read on to see a special story this month about what we do every day that makes Arbor Springs so unique. Also, remember that while Alzheimer’s Awareness Month is a major focus, we still have a lot of other fun stuff going on in June!
Happy Birthday to Our Residents!

Residents are joyful to see the housekeeper, come to give hugs, and begin to fold laundry together.
“I do it because I’m a hard worker, and I want to go above and beyond. To see these ladies’ faces makes it worth it. It makes them so happy to help us do laundry.”
– Brittany, Housekeeping
This is Brittany finishing a load of laundry.
Housekeeping goes above and beyond by delivering the unfolded laundry to the neighborhood every day after breakfast.
Rejoice is an Aspen CNA. She says hello to housekeeping and notifies the residents that laundry has arrived.
“It’s something that motivates the residents. They love it, and I love to see them feeling accomplished throughout the day. Whenever a resident wishes to help, I make it accessible and provide the supplies.”
– Rejoice, CNA
“I admire this work because it is simple and beautiful. Staff is self-motivated to make connections and be successful. The connection between housekeeping, CNA’s and residents is obvious and direct. These individuals recognize what is win-win for everyone, and are finding ways to achieve it.”
– Ashley, Montessori Lead
*Senada is not pictured. She is a housekeeper that gets credit for getting this routine off the ground. We are all grateful for her!”
