More than 170,000 people in North Carolina are affected by all forms of dementia and these numbers are expected to increase to 210,000 by the year 2025. That’s why we focus all of our efforts locally and we offer insight, compassionate support and assistance to those who are living with or caring for individuals throughout all stages and types of dementia. We are committed to our state and to doing everything in our power to provide local support through our four primary focus areas:
FAMILY SERVICES & SUPPORT
We provide families with daily support through in-office and phone counseling, support groups, resource referrals and emergency respite assistance.
We enhance public relations initiatives, implement new partnership programs and engage in community outreach, grassroots activities, fundraising events and educational forums.
EDUCATION & EMPOWERMENT
We offer a variety of workshops to the community and equip caregivers with the tools and resources they need to make informed decisions.
We advance research for the prevention, cure and treatment of all types of dementia by funding early career investigators from a variety of fields and disciplines.
