The following is a press release from the Alzheimer’s Association.

The Alzheimer’s Association Washington State Chapter celebrated the grand opening of it’s Tukwila location on Thursday, June 28th with an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony.

The organization moved their offices from downtown Seattle earlier this year, opening two new locations in Tukwila and Lynnwood.

“The new office locations are more conveniently located and offer easier access for people needing our services,” said Bob LeRoy, Executive Director for the association.

The Alzheimer’s Association Washington State Chapter provides care and support services to individuals and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other types of ​​dementia. While they continue to offer support groups and other programming in Seattle, the new offices north and south of downtown offer people drop-in locations near I-5 with free parking.

Andrea Reay, President and CEO of the Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce, was on hand to help the organization celebrate their new space.

“We’re very pleased they chose to relocate their offices to this area,” said Reay. “Our motto is that we’re better and stronger together, and that’s certainly the case with an organization like the Alzheimer’s Association that provides such important services to our community.”
