The Alzheimer’s Association, South Carolina Chapter is dedicated to serving the families of the estimated 86,000 South Carolinians affected by Alzheimer’s or related dementia. Your donations also help fund research into the cause of and possible cures for or prevention of dementia.
The Alzheimer's Association is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) nonprofit, donor-supported organization.
Here in our local communities, we are putting donor dollars to work providing information, referral, care consultation, caregiver respite, support services, and educational programs through a network of five regional offices in South Carolina.
To help families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, we offer a 24-hour Helpline (800-272-3900); support groups for people to share concerns and receive support; educational programs and workshops for those affected by Alzheimer’s, the public, and health professionals; and Safe Return to help find people with memory problems who wander and become lost. We also advocate for quality dementia care and services, and funding for public programs serving people with dementia and funding to accelerate the pace of promising research.
We could not do what we do without your support, and we know that you contribute because you believe so strongly in the cause. Together, we will someday realize our shared vision of "A world without Alzheimer's."
