October is a wrap. Team Kensington (with lots of help and participation from friends and family members) fundraised, collaborated, and walked our way to the finish line for the annual San Gabriel Valley Walk to End Alzheimer’s, raising over $1,300 dollars for the cause. Thank you so much to our partners and supporters!
November is National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month
As we embark both on National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month this November and the upcoming fall and winter holiday season, we’re excited to highlight yet another special way in which Kensington Senior Living gives back.
Kensington Senior Living partners year-round with Rivet Revolution to spread awareness, connect the community and donate to research. Rivet Revolution makes stylish, simple, hand-crafted jewelry that is on a mission to end Alzheimer’s. Founded by three women entering the second acts of their respective careers—Liz, Susan, and Carol—the Revolution was created to fund research and to empower the networks of families and friends who have been affected by the disease. To date, we have donated over $26,000 to Alzheimer’s research through our partnership with Rivet Revolution directly to Part the Cloud and we want to give more!
Join Kensington Senior Living this November, National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, in helping to spread the revolution to end Alzheimer’s.

How else can we spread the word about Alzheimer’s Awareness?
We are also partnering with Rivet Revolution on their Voices of the Revolution video project. Share your Alzheimer’s experience in a quick video and post it to Facebook or Instagram with the following hashtags: #alzrevolution #voicesofalzrevolution #rivetrevolution #kensingtonseniorliving
The hope is that many friends, families and professionals will create videos – our own team is participating! These videos should be casual in nature and encourage others to like, share, create their own, and spread the word about Alzheimer’s, similar to other video “challenges” you’ve seen on social media.
