One of the many benefits of living at Ardenwoods is how easy it is to travel. We are only five miles away from Asheville Regional Airport, which has direct flights to many popular international airports such as Washington Dulles, Newark, Charlotte Douglas, and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta. Our modest airport makes for quick check-in and security lines, and it even boasts a brand new Cinnabon.
The Walk to End Alzheimer’s took place on Saturday, September 21 in Pack Square, downtown Asheville. The Walk is one of our favorite events each year. Residents and staff make up Team Ardenwoods. When we gather together at the walk, it’s really our whole Ardenwoods community coming together. It’s a wonderful time to remember loved ones, encourage those who are caring for loved ones, and support those who have lost loved ones.
