WHAT THEY DO: MemoryCare is a nationally recognized, local nonprofit serving Western North Carolina families affected by Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia for the past 20 years. 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.
Although the journey was not easy for us, MemoryCare helped me avoid many medical and emotional pitfalls. For this reason, I believe the people of Western North Carolina are fortunate to have the resources of MemoryCare available.—Dale Rusk, caregiver
