Memory problems can be scary! Whether it is you, someone you know, or someone you love, it is hard to navigate what options there are and what steps to take. At Memory Matters we understand and our mission is to support you throughout your journey.
Memory Matters began in 1994 as Alzheimer's of Glynn/Brunswick. In 2016 we expanded our mission to include all forms of adult onset memory impairment and renamed the organization Memory Matters.
To support, educate and enrich the lives of people dealing with memory issues and the people who care for them.
A nonprofit is as strong as the community that holds it up. Together, we can do more than we can do alone. Let's bring our abilities and passions together to affect real change.
There are many ways to join us and support our mission. Contact us to find out more about volunteer opportunities, fundraising events, and ways that you can get our message to your friends and family.
