The Alzheimer’s Care & Enrichment (ACE) Program offers respite for caregivers while their loved ones meet with qualified staff in a safe, familiar environment. For participants, ACE provides a sense of community, sustaining their connections with others, while engaging them in a host of activities, including exercise, art, music, meal preparation, and weekly visits with the JCC nursery schoolers. Caregivers can look to the JCC for expert answers and for referrals to community resources. We also invite caregivers to join monthly support groups.
Families are at the heart of MDA's mission. We wake up every morning to create more hope and answers for families living with muscular dystrophy and related neuromuscular diseases that take away physical strength and mobility. We fund groundbreaking research for promising treatments and provide families with the highest quality care from the best doctors in the country.
