First Four of Alzheimer’s Orange Counties post:

We have been serving Orange County since 1982– nearly 35 years. 2016 was a year of tremendous growth and outstanding achievements for our organization, and we continue to provide quality care and support services to the thousands of residents of Orange County who are affected by Alzheimer’s disease or other related dementia. See what we did this past year:

      __________________________
1. Our new Adult Day Center

We took over operations of South County Adult Day Services and moved it into a beautiful new building. Here, we provide social and healthcare programs to seniors and individuals affected by dementia, giving their caregivers and loved ones a much-needed break. We are beginning drop-in respite services in January 2017.

2. Dementia Care Education
We held nearly 500 free community education events where we taught 25,453 people how to be even better caregivers for their loved ones.

3. Our Telephone Helpline

Our 24/7 telephone hotline provided advice, information, referrals and support to the 6,750 OC residents who called in this past year.

      _____________________________

4. Support Groups
4,286 caregivers found comfort, hope and strength through our 40 support groups across Orange County.
