Benefits of Participating

Benefits of Participating in the Purple Haven Project

– Recognition as a Purple Haven Establishment will encourage caregivers to patronize your establishment

– Help eliminate stressful and challenging situations for your patrons as well as  your staff

– Set your establishment apart as a pro-active member of the community who recognized the specific needs of caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s disease

There are an estimated 3,500 cases of Alzheimer’s disease in Beaufort County. These persons are our friends, neighbors and maybe even family members.

The stress and challenges of being a caregiver for a person with Alzheimer’s disease are overwhelming. For these caregivers, the simple pleasure of enjoying a meal out at a restaurant, relaxing at a hair salon or barber shop or even simply going to the bank or a retail store with their family member, can sometimes be nothing short of a nightmare for them.  The Purple Haven Project educates staff members at local establishments with appropriate ways of interacting with persons with Alzheimer’s disease, helping to create a more enjoyable situation for caregivers and your staff.

Become a Purple Haven establishment and help these friends, neighbors and family members have the opportunity to create more memories.
