Alzheimer’s Family Organization (AFO) is a community based, non-profit organization focused on helping caregivers with loved ones that have Alzheimer’s disease, or other forms of dementia, achieve and maintain a better quality of life not only for their loved ones, but for themselves. Finding this balance enables them to enjoy and appreciate the time they have with their loved one without sacrificing their personal well-being. AFO provides this opportunity through local, caring support, including training, education, support programs, and referral services. When caregivers engage with AFO, they soon realize they are not alone—they have a “family” of caring experts that understands and will stand beside them.
