In 1991, guided by Reverend John Fletcher, Saint Paul's United Methodist Church introduced an outreach program we now call Alzheimer's Project, Inc.
Alzheimer's Project, Inc., was first incorporated as the non-profit organization Alzheimer's Project of Tallahassee, Inc., in 1992. In 2006, The Alzheimer’s Project, Inc. celebrated 15 years of service to the Tallahassee and Leon County community. In 2007, The Alzheimer's Project of Tallahassee, merged with the Alzheimer's Resource Center of Tallahassee to become The Alzheimer’s Project, Inc. In addition to its many services currently being provided in Leon County, The Alzheimer’s Project, Inc. has recently increased its service base and is now providing support groups in Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Jackson, Jefferson, Liberty, Madison, Taylor and Wakulla counties.
In 2011, Alzheimer's Project, Inc. celebrates 20 years of service to the Big Bend Region of Florida.
Alzheimer’s Project, Inc.’s main focus has always been providing assistance to caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s disease. By placing volunteers in patient’s homes, Alzheimer’s Project, Inc., is able to provide much needed respite for caregivers.
Respite time provides caregivers the opportunity to learn how to take care of themselves; whether they go to the grocery store, attend doctor’s appointments or take a nap for 3 hours, it is their time for themselves. Through the years Alzheimer’s Project, Inc., has incorporated support groups, counseling, educational opportunities, the Project Lifesaver Program and many more programs and social services for caregivers.
Alzheimer's Project, Inc. proudly continues to provide ALL support services to the Alzheimer’s community free of charge.
