“The ARK’s mission is to provide hope and relief to families living with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia through support services such as respite care, support groups, education, caregiver consultation, and resource referrals and community development. The ARK offers group social respite in a safe, therapeutic, and loving environment of acceptance. Family members receive a temporary break from the responsibilities of full-time caregiving, while the care receiver participates in social activities,” said Peg Lahmayer, founder and executive director of The ARK.
