Our Story

Senior Helpers, experts in Alzheimer’s and dementia, partnered with George G. Glenner Alzheimer’s Family Centers, Inc. to bring a unique experience of Town Square to seniors across the country.

The Town Square concept was created by Dr. George Glenner, who was a physician and Alzheimer’s researcher at the UCSD School of Medicine and conducted research on the beta-amyloid protein that is considered to be the hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease. The programming of Town Square involves 14 individual vignettes that offer interactive activities for seniors to do, such as going to a functioning library in the care center. The entire town is designed in mid-century style to evoke the same feelings for seniors that they had when they were young adults.
