The Kensington Sierra Madre is thrilled to partner once again with AlzAuthors to bring you a thoughtfully curated Book Club Meet & Greet created with the caregiver in mind this summer. Beyond knowledge, entertainment and a great escape from the demands of the day, books have a number of benefits that can make life better. They have the power to heal, inform and inspire. They can also provide comfort, encourage reflection, reduce stress, and support you during your caregiving journey.

Join us on-site for an inspirational roundtable book discussion with three compassionate authors: Sherri Snelling, Gerontologist & Author of Me Time Monday; Tsgoyna Tanzman, Speech Language Pathologist & Author of Hope After Stroke; and Cindy Weinstein, Professor & Author of Finding the Right Words. Listen in as they guide you through selected excerpts from their featured works, and get the chance to ask your top caregiver questions in a welcoming, intimate setting. Learn from their wide-ranging wisdom and experience and connect with other family caregivers who are on similar journeys!

While you’re here, enjoy a delicious summer spread of sweet and savory hors d’oeuvres made with love by our Executive Chef Dusko. Following our Book Club, tour our loving community and experience Our Promise to love and care for your family as we do our own. We are here for you – skilled, prepared and ready to participate fully in your care journey. As specialists in all aspects of Assisted Living and Memory Care, we offer services and programs that are thoughtfully designed, clinically comprehensive and highly personalized. By offering three levels of Memory Care, we improve quality of life for our residents to the greatest extent possible. And couples are welcome, even if their care needs differ. We’re standing by, eager to listen and ready to help.
