About Memory Matters Utah

Founded on March 23, 2012, Memory Matters Utah, formerly the Alzheimer's and Dementia Society, meets the growing needs of our senior population. As a 501(C)(3) service organization in Southern Utah, we believe in passionately empowering individuals, families, and communities with support, education, and caregiving.  With the help of volunteers and the generous support of donors, we are able to walk alongside those who are navigating the difficult path of Alzheimer's disease, dementia, and caregiving.
