National Alzheimer's Buddies
We're proud to partner with Yale University's Alzheimer's Buddies program, in which students volunteer their time to connect with senior living residents with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. From compiling and delivering gift baskets to conducting video calls to lift residents' spirits, National Alzheimer's Buddies are a valued partner of The Hearth.
