West Virginia CARES — Coordinated Action, Response, Education and Support — is the nation’s first statewide effort to help families living with dementia. The initiative’s aim is to help organizations and individuals in non-profit, law enforcement, faith, business and other communities learn about dementia so they can assist those with memory loss. This collaboration also will empower individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias to engage independently and safely in their communities.
West Virginia University Health Sciences is leading the effort along with key partners throughout the state with support from the Claude W. Benedum Foundation.
