Wyoming Dementia Care receives grant from national organization
The nonprofit organization Wyoming Dementia Care received a five thousand dollar grant from the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America last week.
Wyoming Dementia Care provides cost-free social support and information to dementia sufferers, their families, and their caregivers.
Carol Crump with WDC says that the organization’s most popular service is a series of support groups for caregivers, who are often the dementia sufferer’s family.
“During our support groups, there are activities and professionals available to take care of those that the caregivers take care of the rest of the time.” said Crump, “It gives the caregivers a break from 24/7 of watching out for their loved ones.”
Crump also says that the AFA will provide Wyoming Dementia Care with memory screening supplies.
Crump says the money will help the organization ensure that its services remain free of charge.
