The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) is thrilled to share that Alzheimer’s Disease & Related Disorders Association, Inc was awarded a grant of $1,625.00 to help with providing care and support for residents with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. Funding for this project was provided by Roscommon County Health Improvement Endowment and the Roscommon County Tobacco Settlement Endowment Fund.
The funding was used for a Dementia Education Program for Roscommon County residents and their caregivers. With this they set up a few programs such as education workshops and support groups. Another important aspect that the funding went towards was a 24/7 helpline. The education program also helps increase awareness of symptoms, so friends or family members know what signs to look for in their loved ones.
