JFS Alzheimer's Disease Initiative

Smiling Older Man

An integrated support system for families impacted by Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD)

When it comes to coping with Alzheimer’s, every journey is different. That’s why, in partnership with Alzheimer’s San Diego, we’ve built a care network designed to wrap around the unique needs of individuals and caregivers impacted by ADRD. Whether you’re concerned about a loved one or coping with the symptoms of dementia on your own, we’re here for you and your family.

“After months and months of mostly sleeping or watching TV, my husband has a place to play games, dance, have lunch, and laugh. It really has widened his world.”
