Alzheimer’s Arkansas is an independent, nonprofit organization. We offer free programs, services, and financial assistance to caregivers across the state of Arkansas. Our focus is to support the journey our caregivers face each and every day as they care for loved ones with dementia or chronic illness.
Alzheimer’s Arkansas Programs and Services was first incorporated in 1984 as the “Alzheimer’s Support Group of Central Arkansas,” with the purpose of providing information and support to persons with dementia and their caregivers. Later, the group of volunteer leaders joined the national Alzheimer’s Association. In 2002, the Board of Directors elected to disaffiliate from the national association to become Alzheimer’s Arkansas Programs and Services.
Our programs and services are free to family caregivers. Your contributions help us help others right here in the state of Arkansas.
Programs & Services:
- Caregiver educational workshops and events
- Caregiver respite activities
- Grant funding
- Lunch-n-Learns/support groups – in person and virtual options
- Community awareness presentations
- Lending library of printed and video materials
- Telephone and in-person support
We create a compassionate, welcoming and restorative community for family caregivers across the state who are caring for those with dementia, chronic illness or debilitating disease.
We envision an Arkansas where all family caregivers are prepared, valued and comforted.
We provide access to free programming, information, education and support to Arkansas’s family caregivers. Family caregiving is a difficult – but also fulfilling – journey through an emotional and vulnerable time during someone’s life. It is our greatest calling to create the space where Arkansas caregivers can find what they need in order to best care for themselves and their family members. Through Alzheimer’s Arkansas, family caregivers are supported, empowered and comforted by their connections [or access] to and relationships with our well-trained team and other Arkansas caregivers
