Established in 1991, Alzheimer’s of Central Alabama is a local organization helping local families. ACA serves 21 counties across central Alabama. 100% of the money we raise stays in Alabama.
Each year over 400 people with dementia and their families benefit from services such as scholarships to attend adult day care centers or to receive continence products, Project Lifesaver bracelets to diminish the risk of wandering, education through support groups, newsletter, website, community awareness/education programs, and our telephone helpline.
Research: ACA has funded annual research grants since 2004 and in 2018 established the Alzheimer’s of Central Alabama Pre-Doctoral Scholars Program Support Fund for Alzheimer’s Disease Research.
We provide services in Bibb, Blount, Calhoun, Cleburne, Chilton, Clay, Coosa, Etowah, Fayette, Greene, Hale, Jefferson, Lamar, Pickens, Randolph, Shelby, St. Clair, Talladega, Tallapoosa, Tuscaloosa, and Walker counties.
