Larger Office Will Better Serve Community
The office has relocated to 37309 Harvest Drive, Avon, effective August 1. The new location is off Colorado Avenue between Route 254 and Eaton Drive.
It is on Harvest Drive just west of the Avon Library building.
The current office at 38440 Chester Road has permanently closed.
“The new Avon office will help us better serve our constituents and volunteers in Lorain County and western Cuyahoga County. Not only will we be able to host support group and educational programs in the new conference room, we will have expanded space for staff and volunteers. We look forward to continuing to serve individuals and families dealing with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias in Lorain County in this beautiful space,” said Nancy Udelson, chapter president and CEO.
The new space has a conference room providing the capacity to host support group and educational programs and more capacity for five staff members and volunteers. Walk-in visits are welcome.
