About Us

Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that occurs gradually and results in memory loss, changes in behavior and personality, a decline in thinking abilities and eventually, death. More than five million people in the United States alone currently suffer with Alzheimer’s disease.  On average, an Alzheimer's disease patient lives 8 to 10 years after they are diagnosed. Some patients live with the disease for as long as 20 years.

The caregivers of patients experience their own stages of the disease (Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance).  Understanding the dynamics of the disease process and obtaining sound advice is imperative for ensuring a quality of life for both patients and caregivers.

Alzheimer's Community Care has developed a proven model of care to combat the difficult effects of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. Alzheimer's Community Care provides Specialized Alzheimer's Day Care Centers, Family Nurse Consultants, Education and Training, 24-Hour Crisis Line, Caregiver Support Groups, Case Management, and Disaster Preparedness. Our unique organization is dedicated to being the ultimate service and resource provider to people struggling with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. Our innovative model of care provides services and resources that are accessible, affordable and individualized. We are committed to preserving the dignity of our patients and caregivers within a community-based environment.

Support Groups

When someone becomes a caregiver to an Alzheimer's disease or related disorder patient, their relationship with their loved one will change.  Their role will go from spouse or child to caregiver.  They will take on new responsibilities in their home, such as paying the bills or doing the taxes.  In addition, they will face the considerable responsibility of taking care of their loved one's medical issues and emotional struggles.

Caregivers also must deal with their own emotions and grief as their relationship changes and their loved one faces this difficult disease. This situation can be overwhelming.

Alzheimer's Community Care has set up Caregiver Support Groups throughout the community to help people better cope with these complex issues.  These groups provide an opportunity for people in similar circumstances to develop relationships and support systems, as well as to receive accurate information on how best to cope and live with this disease.
