WHAT THEY DO: MemoryCare is a local, nonprofit organization serving Western North Carolina families affected by Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. As nationally recognized pioneers in dementia care, we have been supporting families since 2000. Our mission is to provide specialized medical care to older adults with cognitive impairment; to support caregivers with education, counseling and improved access to services; and to provide community education. Educational programs and peer support groups are available to all with need.
We are just one of many families devastated by dementia. We are so fortunate in the guidance and support we have received from MemoryCare.—Bob Gunn, caregiver
