Over 3000 Washington County residents have Alzheimer's or a related dementia. 75% of them are not diagnosed. When you add in those in Iron, Kane, and Beaver Counties that number goes well over 4000. Our neighbors in Mesquite, Nevada also have a growing population of seniors with dementia and have asked for services.
These diseases drain our senior's financial resources and their ability to cope.
Memory Matters Utah / Nevada is a grassroots service organization dedicated to these areas and to these caregivers and people with dementia. We are a 501(c)(3) organization. Our funding comes only from donations and a few small grants.
