The Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Their mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
Here in East Tennessee, the Alzheimer’s Association serves 14 counties, including Anderson County. The local staff serves the community by offering face-to-face support groups, educational programs and one on one care consultations with families, caregivers and those living with the disease.
Manager of Development, Rebecca Williams, has been a Chamber member since 2018. “Having the opportunity to network and meet local businesses has been extremely beneficial to the work we do,” said Rebecca. “Every Chamber event I attend, I have been able to share the resources we provide, and I know I have been able to help families in need, because of this.”
