Alzheimer’s Family Center is thrilled to announce its first Healthy Brain Fair, which will be held on Saturday, November 4, 2017. This free event offers local community members the opportunity to learn about maintaining brain health, signs and symptoms of memory loss, and the many local resources available for family caregivers.
Effective March 1, 2017 the name of Alzheimer’s Family Services Center will become Alzheimer’s Family Center.
We believe that our new name reflects our commitment to provide a continuum of dementia care services beyond Adult Day Health Care. We will continue to serve individuals with memory loss and their family caregivers with our adult day care services, and will be introducing a new service delivery model that will focus on improving the impact of mental health conditions, such as dementia and depression.
The center will continue to operate in its current structure, and your contacts will remain unchanged. Other than this slight name and logo change, there is no change in our nonprofit status and no change in staff. Our center and office location, email addresses, phone and fax numbers will remain the same. The website address will also remain the same: www.AFSCenter.org
About Alzheimer’s Family Center
Alzheimer’s Family Center (AFC), a nonprofit adult day health care provider dedicated to the daily care of individuals living with memory loss, has a 36-year history of improving the quality of life of families challenged by Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia. Given its specialization and commitment to excellence, the center draws adult day health care patients from across Orange County, and serves nearly 100 patients daily through customized programming tailored to the needs of individuals from the earliest to most advanced stages of dementia.
The agency makes a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of its patients, with patients experiencing 43% less falls and a 25% reduction in emergency room visits within six months of enrollment in AFC’s adult day health care services. AFC families find help from day one of receiving a dementia diagnosis, relief from the anxiety and fear of taking on the responsibilities of caregiving. AFC also provides support with the medical, emotional, and financial challenges of caring for a memory-impaired loved one.
