A little about who we are…
In Sept. 1999, funding was awarded from the State of South Carolina to begin an Social Day Program for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. The program is therapeutic for the patient and provides extra hours of respite for the caregiver. In January 2000, an Executive Director was hired and the program has been growing rapidly since in order to keep up with growing demands of Beaufort County’s retirement population.
Currently, we offer three (3) days of group respite a week for up to 15 participants each day, weekly caregiver support groups, in-home respite care; a maintain your brain group for those recently diagnosed, or anyone wanting to stimulate and promote a healthy brain; home education and training programs for the community and for medical personnel are also available by special arrangement.
Funding for all programs is raised locally, and all memorial gifts and donations are gratefully accepted.
