Alzheimer's Services of the Capital Area, Inc.
August 24, 2012
After a lifetime of living in New England my husband and I relocated to Baton rouge for his work. I left behind a career in elder services to make this move and have wanted to connect with an agency to continue to be of service to elders and their families. Of all the agencies I explored, Alzheimer's Services of the Capital Area does their work with much heart and sincere attention to the families' needs. It seems to me that from the first staff person encountered at the front door or the first difficult to make phone call the family member is greeted with respect and full attention. Charlie's Place is an adult day social program for respite care they have developed to be a wonderful atmosphere for folks with dementia. So much thought and care has gone into this program it is a salvation to many families using it. As a volunteer I aspire to be as welcoming and helpful as I can be to help Alzheimer's Services achieve their agency goals.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Spending brief but meaningful time with some folks from the Adult day program, Charlie's Place, had conversations with some people who have come to the Sharing the Journey talks.
