We are a one hundred percent community based nonprofit organization.
Our purpose is to offer support, guidance, and educational resources to professional and family member caregivers who are providing care for those with Alzheimer's, Dementia, and other memory loss related illnesses.

Why so much information ??????? The military strategist who wrote the book "The Art of War" said "Know your enemy and know yourself, and you won't be overcome in battle. Know yourself  but not your enemy, find level of loss and victory. Know your enemy but not yourself, wallow in defeat every time."
As caregivers we are in a battle. And the enemy is dementia. Not knowing this enemy affects the person with dementia, the family and especially the caregiver.

This information will help by empowering family members and caregivers at every step of the way. By educating on the diseases the symptoms and by providing personal caregiver experiences. That way family members and caregivers can make sense of what is happening to their loved ones, the caregiver, and their family.
Our focus is on how to apply this information to the specific situation.
We do this through our support groups, web site, seminars, videos, peer counseling, family mediation and our referral services.
