Dementia Resource Center

Dementia Resource Center logo
The Athens Community Council on Aging has been dedicated to serving the needs of the Greater Athens community and creating an inclusive environment for all since its inception in 1967. With the current lack of dementia care resources and the necessity for an overarching, dementia-forward program, The Dementia Resource Center was established to address these needs from within the programming and services of the greater ACCA. Built upon four core pillars – education, support, enrichment, and care, the Dementia Resource Center offers a positive, supportive, and understanding approach to demonstrate how full life can still be following a diagnosis.
