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.
