Who would choose to go to Antarctica and why?
Those questions were answered by Maple Crest villa residents Stan and Jo Clemens and Mark and Kay Weidner during a recent travelogue program.

The Alzheimer's Support Group at Mennonite Memorial Home meets at 3:30 p.m. the third Monday of every month.
According to Darren Lee of Mennonite Home Communities of Ohio, Alzheimer's disease is life-changing for both those who are diagnosed and those close to them. The Alzheimer’s Support Group at Mennonite Memorial Home provides a place to connect with other caregivers who truly understand what you are going through. Often we hear caregivers say they are looking for support from people who "really understand because they've been there, too."
