    If you care for someone with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease you may notice that they get increasingly agitated, anxious, more confused or aggressive as the sun begins to set. These symptoms may be associated with sundowner syndrome. Sundowner syndrome causes people to be confused at the end of the day and into the night. It is common for individuals who are sundowning to pace, wander, ignore directions and not sleep well.

  • A single spark leads to 70 years of smiles

    Like a forest fire that begins with a single, small spark, Eugene and Marjorie French’s 70-year marriage was sparked with one wide, winning smile.

  • Jesse Roundtree honored for service

    Louise Roundtree sat at the table in the kitchen of the home she shared for 67 years with her husband, Jesse Monroe Roundtree. As she recounted the time she spent with him, emotion washed over her.

    The two were married on May 10, 1947.

    “He was a kind man,” she said, choking back tears. “He’d help anyone do anything.”
