Support the Alzheimer Alliance
The Alzheimer's Alliance of Smith County has been providing life-changing support to persons with dementia and their caregivers since 1982. Here are some of the services we provide:
- Memory screenings
- Free case management
- Counseling for both those with dementia and their caregivers
- Free caregiver education workshops
- The REACH program, a one-on-one training for caregivers that is proven to reduce stress
- The Day Club respite program, where caregivers can drop off their loved one from 10 am to 2 pm Tuesday and Thursday for crafts, games, lunch, and dancing.
- Free support groups for caregivers, including a For Men Only group
- The Project Lifesaver locator bracelet program for people with dementia at risk of wandering
- 40 hours per year of free in-home and 10 days of free respite care in a facility
- Health professionals trainings
- Dementia-friendly community initiatives to make Tyler more inclusive and accommodating to those with dementia
Most of these services are free, and costs for those that aren't are determined by what someone is able to give. We never turn away anyone for inability to pay.
