AOS&FC believes that it will take a community effort to offer the support and understanding that those with dementia and their caregivers need and deserve.

All six members of the Board of Directors of AOS & Friends Care, Inc. have received their certification as “Dementia Friends.” The Dementia Friends USA opens in a new window initiative  is one of the programs of the Dementia Friendly America organization (www.dfamerica.org/ opens in a new window) and is part of a global movement that is changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia. It is geared toward helping everyone in a community understand what dementia is and how it affects people, and how each of us can make a difference for people touched by dementia

To help address this need, AOS&FC participates in community events throughout Moore County and the Sandhills, offering informational presentations and seminars to area groups.

AOS&FC Board Member Dr. Karen D. Sullivan of Pinehurst Neuropsychology presenting “How To Be A Friend: Thoughts on Dementia & Community” at Seven Lakes Chapel in the Pines.
