Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There are caregivers for individuals with Alzheimer's or dementia who live all over the state without adequate funds, training, and education. It is our goal to provide grants, workshops, and support to those in need. Many caregivers pass away before the person they care for simply because of the stress and challenges of the job. If we can alleviate some of that stress and provide the tools needed to more successfully care for their loved ones, caregivers can live longer, happier lives.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

It is our goal to offer needed services all over the state of Arkansas. We work to enter cities all over the state to make sure support is accessible to all people. We also aim to seek funding and sponsorship to ensure our education and training remains free-of-charge for all caregivers.

Also, we facilitate grants for individuals in need of financial assistance to cover respite situations or simply offer support in the home.

We currently offer lunch-an-learn training sessions once a month in 7 cities across the sate. We also offer day-long conferences in 11 cities. Our financial assistance grants are made available to individuals all over the state who meet the requirements of the grant application.

We employ a staff of full-time educators and grant facilitators. All staff receives training to remain educated in the field of Alzheimer's and dementia related illness care-giving.

We have greatly increased the number and amount of funds given to individuals in need. We have also increased the number of educational presentations facilitated and the geographical area covered by our services.
