Alzheimer’s Project, Inc.’s focus is to provide: 

 “assistance to caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s disease. By placing volunteers in patient’s homes, Alzheimer’s Project, Inc., is able to provide much needed respite for caregivers.

Respite time provides caregivers the opportunity to learn how to take care of themselves; whether they go to the grocery store, attend doctor’s appointments or take a nap for 3 hours, it is their time for themselves. Through the years Alzheimer’s Project, Inc., has incorporated support groups, counseling, educational opportunities, the Project Lifesaver Program and many more programs and social services for caregivers.
