Merry Christmas to us! To our surprise and delight it was discovered in early December that we have a skilled pianist among us. Sara Getty revealed her hidden talent just in time for Christmas carols. Now you may not be impressed but Sara is 91 years young and appears enchanted when her fingers touch the keys. We are all warmed by the music and song around us. Christmas is a magical time for our participants. They remember Christmas carols through the fog of Alzheimer’s and they sing. It is remarkable to see. We are all so blessed.

The Perfect Place is located on the campus of Risen Savior Lutheran Church in Sun Lakes. We are a nonprofit faith based adult care center. Our volunteers are knowledgeable of Alzheimer’s, dementia, developmental disabilities and various adult neurological challenges. Most of us have had a loved one for which we were a caregiver. We enjoy what we do.

The following dates have been designated for programs to support caregivers at the Perfect Place and in our community: Friday, January 13 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. -Visiting Angels and Chandler Memory Care
