Welcome

Welcome to Memory Keepers, a website designed to inform and educate; promote networking and sharing; and announce, sponsor, and support  fund-raising events supporting Dementia and Alzheimer’s care-givers and patients in Arkansas!

Dementia is a growing concern among men and women, the young and old, the healthy and unhealthy.  One in eight people suffer from some form of dementia.  One in six by the time we are 65 and 1 in 2 if we live to be 85!  It is so important that we do what we can to share information on the prevention of dementia, or at least what we can do to prolong the symptoms and improve our quality of life as we age.  Whether its understanding diet and nutrition, the importance of exercise, using our brain power, how to be more patient and understanding, reducing stress in our everyday lives, or doing what we can to find true contentment and peace of heart, we can all do more ……..

There are many organizations, associations, and individuals who work tirelessly to share information about dementia and Alzheimer’s, provide support to families and individuals, help to fund further research, or volunteer at various events meant to raise funds to do those previously mentioned things.

YOU can get involved, too, by providing your time, energy, or financial resources to these various entities found around our great State of Arkansas.  MEMORY KEEPERS is one group being established to help in many ways!  The more people we get involved, the more we can assist others.  Consider becoming a part of this group!
