Alzheimer’s Resource Center still offering help to caregivers


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The Alzheimer’s Resource Center is getting back to a normal routine.

During the pandemic, many caregivers were forced apart from loved ones with Alzheimer’s.

At the time, caregivers had to find creative ways to show care to patients.

Now with the restrictions loosened and vaccinations widely available, they are slowly opening up.

The center has many books and brochures that caregivers can come in to grab free of charge that will teach them about the disease.

Executive Director Kay Jones said the center lives by its motto ‘ sharing the care.”

“We put our heads together and try to help if it doesn’t work try this try this. It’s such an awful disease but there’s a lot of healing in helping, so when we help other caregivers it just makes you feel good,” Kay Jones said.

If you’re a caregiver and looking to learn more about Alzheimer’s, call the resource center.
