Brighter together.

We value our partnerships with the many nonprofits, businesses and people who make a difference in our diverse community.

This month, we recognize the ACC Care Center.

ACC Care Center

Residents at the ACC Care Center are sleeping better these days. Our partnership blossomed when we implemented cutting-edge lighting control strategies in an effort to improve the health, safety and lives of the Alzheimer's and dementia patients living there. Some residents have experienced improved sleep patterns, suffered fewer falls and taken less medication since the new lighting was installed.
