Your Support Matters
Alzheimer’s disease touches everyone. In the Big Bend alone over 4000 families are affected each year. If you don’t know someone who has been touched by Alzheimer’s, you will. Your donation will enable us to be there to help. We depend on private donations and grants to fund our services, which are free of charge to our clients. All funds raised stay local and help support families in need. Your donation helps build a stronger, more caring community.
By donating to Alzheimer’s Project, your contribution could help provide the following:
Day Respite offers people with dementia group activities, such as music therapy. Just as important, day respite gives caregiver a much- needed break. Last year we served over 300 individuals in 4 counties through day respite. We need your support to expand this important service.
Caregiver Support Groups
Caring for a loved one with dementia can be a lonely job. Through our Caregiver Support Groups, caregivers interact with other caregivers, discuss their problems, and find real world solutions. We operate twenty-one caregiver support groups in nine counties, and with your help we can increase this number and sustain more caregivers.
Alzheimer's Project operates an AmeriCorps Program aimed at reaching veterans and their families. We have thirty trained AmeriCorps volunteers who provide in-home respite to military veterans. There is a waiting list for these services. Your donation will support military veterans with dementia.
Education and training is key to dispelling the myths around Alzheimer's Disease and dementia. Community presentations on subjects like Normal Aging versus Dementia or Understanding Dementia: Increasing Your Communication Skills provides new skills and relief to many families. Additional resources will let us expand the frequency of trainings.
Your individual gift will help ensure the delivery of vital services the Alzheimer's Project provides to the community.
When someone close to you passes away, a gift to the Alzheimer’s Project is a significant way to remember your loved one.
You can honor someone on a special occasion, such as a birthday, anniversary or holiday, by making a gift in their name to the Alzheimer’s Project. Please include the contact information for the person to whom you are giving tribute, and a card acknowledging your gift will be sent to them.
