Catherine Owens and Alzheimer's Idaho on Senior Matters Radio
Alzheimer's Idaho is a local non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality client-centered services for those affected with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. We offer services in Boise and nearby outlying areas in the Treasure Valley. Additionally, we have achieved our donation and fundraising goals and are now able to provide subsidized respite and day care for affected families.
We are a stand-alone non-profit 501(c)(3) organization providing a variety of services and support locally to our affected Alzheimer’s population and their families/caregivers. We are a support system to both local families affected by the disease, and professionals as well. We are not affiliated with the National Alzheimer’s Association.
Jerri Stanfield, Alzheimer's Idaho's Executive Director, conducts trainings, orchestrates and manages support groups, organizes community outreach and fundraisers, and is a consistant source of support for local families and caregivers of those afflicted with this disease.
