The Alzheimer’s Foundation of Central California is a 501C3 organization whose mission is to provide Educational and Supportive Information to patients and families suffering with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementias.
Educational information about the disease and the progression is essential as well as services within the local community that can assist with proper care for the patient as well as the caregiver.

The Foundation also provides referrals to services within the local areas of service encompassing Merced County, Madera County, Fresno County and Tulare County of the state of California.

From the first feast in 1621 to 1863 Thanksgiving was not an holiday. President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held in November. He wanted to give thanks for “general blessings”. Many people will be traveling to visit friends and family. There will be parades, football games, family dinners and of course pumpkin pie. As we look to the holiday this week, let us remember and give thanks for this great country.
