The Alzheimer’s Outreach Center of South Georgia accepted a funding gift from the Kiwanis Club of Dougherty County at the club’s August 6 meeting. Present to receive the $500 check from club president Todd Butler was AOCSG’s director, Virginia Griffin. Started in 1988 as a joint ministry by downtown Albany churches, the Alzheimer’s Outreach Center is now operated under a grant from the Sowega Council on Aging, with facilities furnished by First United Methodist Church. The center provides a quality day-care and in-home respite program for patients suffering with Alzheimer’s Disease and their often-stressed caregivers. Director Griffin emphasized that the Alzheimer’s Outreach Center of South Georgia is a separate organization from the nationally-known Alzheimer’s Association.
