South Carolina Chapter

The health and safety of our constituents, volunteers and staff remain our driver as we address the COVID-19 outbreak and as we continue to pursue our mission, today and in the longer term.
 
Based on guidance from the CDC and local public health agencies, we are implementing the following precautionary measures:

As of March 13, 2020, the staff of the South Carolina Chapter will be working remotely. We are prepared with technological and other support for our staff to successfully operate in support of our mission.
 
Alzheimer’s Association operations will continue, and we will re-evaluate these measures on an ongoing basis and resume in-person engagements as soon as we are able, based on public health guidelines.
 
All meetings, events and participation in activities (both internal and external) will now be conducted online or by phone whenever possible. Details on meetings and events will be posted here (alz.org/sc) as they are available.
 
During this time, the Alzheimer’s Association is available to you 24/7 for around-the-clock care and support via our Helpline at 1.800.272.3900.

We encourage you to email our chapter staff with any specific questions or concerns that you may have. You can also stay connected by subscribing to our weekly E-news and following our SC Chapter Facebook Page.

Alzheimer's Association South Carolina Chapter

Currently, more than 95,000 South Carolinians are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and over 318,000 family 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.
