Currently, more than 95,000 South Carolinians are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and over 199,000 family members and friends are providing care for them. Serving the entire state through regional offices in Anderson, Charleston, Columbia, Greenville, Myrtle Beach and Spartanburg, our chapter is here to help.
We provide education and support to those facing Alzheimer’s and other dementias throughout our community, including those living with the disease, caregivers, health care professionals and families. We are also committed to advocating for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer’s disease and advancing critical research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.
The Alzheimer’s Association provides services to the entire state of South Carolina. We're here for individuals and families facing any type of dementia.
