Alzheimer's Association - San Antonio & South Texas


How Alzheimer's Association - San Antonio & South Texas impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision

Individuals, families, and caregivers are better equipped to manage the activities of daily living, while having greater safety and security in doing so, because of the information and education that the Alzheimer's Association provides about living with the disease and treatment. From the beginning of a family’s journey with Alzheimer’s, the San Antonio and South Texas Chapter programs help individuals and families obtain diagnosis and medical attention during the earlier stages of disease progression, which can make a significant difference in the effectiveness of treatment long-term and in a family’s preparedness for the challenges ahead as symptoms become more severe. This early intervention and training provides a comprehensive continuum of programs that include: care consultations, support groups, online courses, financial and legal training, and safety services. Over 4,577 individuals in a 47-county region were reached by the San Antonio and South Texas Chapter’s programs and services in 2017. The target population of its programs and services are individuals over the age of 65 residing in Bexar County and their caregivers and families, as over 80 percent of all people living with Alzheimer’s are cared for in their homes by spouses and other family members who provide 24-hour care and supervision.
