For 37 years, the Alzheimer’s & Dementia Resource Center (ADRC) has been here to support Central Florida families and individuals caring for persons living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. ADRC’s skilled team members empower caregivers through support groups, one-on-one care coaching sessions, and educational workshops. These programs and services offered at no cost to caregivers provide the necessary tools and techniques to help caregivers cope with the challenges that lie ahead.
Our top funding priority is to raise at least $25,000 to go towards a salary for a part-time workshop instructor. Last year, 105 educational workshops were held during the day, with only one instructor serving a total of 1,500 attendees. The demand for even more workshops has increased, and there is a need for evening and weekend workshops.
