Memory Matters (formerly Alzheimer’s of Glynn) received a $2,500 grant from the Christ Church Frederica Episcopal Church Women.
The grant will help start a Memory Café at Memory Matters.
The Memory Café will allow caregivers to leave their loved one for a short time to attend a meeting or appointment where they know they will be safe and cared for.
Memory Matters supports individuals with adult-onset memory loss, such as Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia, Parkinsons Disease, frontal temporal disorders or Lewy Bodys and their caregivers.
Caregivers for individuals with memory loss are on call 24/7 and often need a few precious hours to attend a support group or see a doctor for themselves.
There are currently more than 15 million unpaid caregivers in the United States who receive little community support.
It is Memory Matters mission to support local caregivers and enrich the lives of their loved one with memory loss.
