Avanti Senior Living at Flower Mound is working to team up with local businesses and neighbors to start an Alzheimer’s awareness movement in the Flower Mound community. To kick start this movement, they will host a carnival in recognition of The Longest Day to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research. The Longest Day honors those who face the daily challenges of living with Alzheimer's; those who live the longest day every day. The carnival will be held on June 17 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Proceeds from the game and activity ticket sales will go to the Alzheimer’s Association, and the organization will also have a booth set up with more information about the upcoming Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The community hopes at least 100 people will sign up and join “Team Flower Mound” for the walk this fall. The carnival will feature a waterslide, bounce houses, water wars with water balloons, face painting, cotton candy, carnival games with prizes and more. All vendors are providing services, materials and their time for free. Residents who frequent the Flower Mound senior center have also volunteered their time to help run the carnival. Avanti is also using this event as an opportunity to invite people out to learn more about Alzheimer’s, dementia and memory care. They are here to serve as a resource for anyone who has questions about what to expect, next steps and more. Booths for games, information and activities will be set up throughout the parking lot.
