First Horizon makes donation to ALPS

ALPS Adult Day Services recently received a $1,000 donation from the First Horizon Foundation.

ALPS is a nonprofit, state licensed comprehensive health program designed to meet the needs of adults with cognitive and or physical impairments that was established in 1986.

A large portion of their operating costs comes from fundraising events, grant writing and the generous support of the communities served. With the community’s support, costs to families per day to attend are based on a sliding scale.

ALPS services the following Lakeway Area counties: Cocke, Grainger, Hamblen, Hawkins and Jefferson.

Daily activities at ALPS are designed to improve memory and language, increase self-esteem, reduce difficult behaviors, reduce night-time wandering and encourage socialization.

These activities include health checks, medication assistance and administration, adaptive exercise and walking, arts, crafts, music and dance, memory and language activities, group discussions, special guests from within our community, pet therapy and breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks with hydration breaks throughout the day.

ALPS dedicated team members work to ensure that loved ones are well taken care of, every step of the way.
