The Alzheimer’s Project provides comfort, support, and assistance to persons with memory disorders and their caregivers across the Big Bend area.
The Alzheimer’s Project is a non-profit organization funded by grants and private donations, and many of the services are delivered through volunteers. Our Day Respite Program and other support services help caregivers stay physically and emotionally healthy. We also deliver professional knowledge through seminars, training classes and peer support groups.
Our goals are to help caregivers sustain a decent quality of life as they care for their loved ones, and to provide a comfortable, dignified existence for people suffering from dementia. In many cases our support helps delay the institutionalization of patients. All of our services are provided free of charge.
