"Our mom is struggling with Alzheimer’s disease. The first meeting we had with a counselor from the Association was invaluable to us. Her knowledgeable, compassionate and competent voice of hope allowed me and my sister to leave the meeting not just armed with strategic information and a game plan, but also with a sense of renewed hope, even a slight incredulity that such an organization actually exists. To move so rapidly from ignorance and fear to renewed hope and strengthened purpose in the task ahead brought a sense of palpable relief to both of us." Anonymous Caregiver
