Ginny & Bob Shell Alzheimer's Center: Arkansas' First Dedicated Facility

The Ginny & Bob Shell Alzheimer's Center is a 30,000 square foot Assisted Living II facility that is certified as an Alzheimer’s Special Care Facility. It is located on the beautiful campus of Parkway Village and is the first free-standing center in Arkansas devoted to people with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. The Center not only provides a compassionate place that respects the rights and privileges of all clients, but also beneficial social interaction for residents, support groups for families, and nursing care for chronic health conditions.

Residents are encouraged to socialize, but will have the freedom to enjoy their home, which can be furnished with their favorite items for a comfortable, home-like feeling. By planning our days with routine activities of daily living as well as fun and stimulating activities, residents are able to spend more time doing the things that bring pleasure and enjoyment: walking, singing, watching TV or doing crafts and other activities.

Our compassionate support staff are highly trained to meet the challenges associated with caring for individuals who have Alzheimer's disease and dementia, and are always available to patiently answer questions, alleviate fears, and provide emotional stability. Staff are in the Center at all times to assist physically, emotionally or spiritually. In addition to support staff, we provide a secure environment with 24-hour security on our gated campus.
