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.
