A Message from the Executive Director, Kathleen Winters
Hi and welcome to the Alzheimer’s Family Organization website where you will find many opportunities to learn about Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. We are a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization and exist because of donations and fundraisers in the community.
As you browse around, just click on any link and it will bring you to information for that subject.
Our Mission and Vision Statements indicate what we strive to do. We offer a wide range of Services and Programs that will help the patient and caregiver manage dementia.
We have over 50 Support Groups that are open to everyone who may be a caregiver of a dementia patient and also support group for the newly diagnosed patient.
The Respite Care Financial Assistance Program offers a $250 reimbursement to ensure that the caregiver has an opportunity to get away from their task, if even for a short time. Get your hair done, play a round of golf, join friends and family for a night out or anything else that may be enjoyable. The task of caregiving will still be there when you return home but it will at least give you a chance to replenish your resolve to continue as a caregiver.
We appreciate donors and sponsors who assist us to continue with our Services and Programs and if you are interested in helping, please contact our office at (727) 848-8888 or (888) 496-8004 or e-mail us at email@example.com.

Please support us as we enter into our Annual Appeal to raise a goal of $100,000 to provide quality services to the Caregivers and their loved ones that suffer from Alzheimer’s or other dementia. Without your support, the need for services will go unmet for so many of your family, friends and neighbors. The Annual Appeal kicks off on April 15, 2016 and will end on November 30, 2016 at the close of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. Please give what you can so we can continue to provide supportive and educational services for those caregivers affected, and loved ones afflicted by this debilitating disease.
