Alzheimer’s Community Care was founded in 1996 by a group of local residents in Florida, who were concerned about the growing number of people affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related neurocognitive disorders.
Founders included Mr. Gaston Jones, Mr. James Gregory, and Mr. Fred Kroll. They determined that all funds raised would be used locally to provide community-based services and that both caregivers and patients would receive the highest quality specialized care delivered with dignity and compassion.
Mary M. Barnes, a longtime advocate for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related neurocognitive disorders, was hired as the founding Executive Director. Ms. Barnes continues to serve the organization and the community, as our President & CEO.
Today, as the largest provider of community-based, dementia-specific services in Florida, we offer 7 Core Services for our families.
Alzheimer’s Community Care is dedicated to promoting and providing community-based, family-centered care for patients and their caregivers living with neurocognitive disorders, through the belief, where there is help, there is hope.
Alzheimer’s Community Care’s leadership team are an essential part of the organization. Their important contributions promote the organization’s advancement. Alzheimer’s Community Care thanks them for their recommendations, input, hard work, and dedication to our mission.
