CHARLESTON, SC (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) – The Ark Alzheimer’s Family Support Services offers powerful tools for caregivers and patients and have some fun events during December.

Megan Severn, development director, and Michel’le Cathey, the special events coordinator, met with us in-studio to talk about how you can support this awesome organization through the harvest and holiday seasons.

The Ark is hosting harvest festivals in November that will include the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s National Memory Screening Program, hearing and screenings, fall risk assessment along with financial and legal aid.

Attendees will enjoy light refreshments, music and door prizes.
