Our Mission

Each year over 400 patients 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 24 research grants and has established the Alzheimer’s of Central Alabama Pre-Doctoral Scholars Program Support Fund for Alzheimer’s Disease Research.
