Every case of Dementia/Alzheimer’s disease is as unique as the individual with the disease, and every caregiver brings unique traits to their care-giving journey. Family caregivers utilize various resources, support systems and coping skills. In providing this care, the family caregiver’s needs are often invisible.
Caring Together in Hope, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization inspired by Carol Troxel Hammitt, a caregiver throughout her life. Carol taught her family well, including the gift of caring for one with Alzheimer’s/dementia. “This isn’t easy. It could be one of the hardest things we have ever accomplished.” It is these gifts we want to share with those who selflessly give to a loved one. Our passion exists for those affected by dementia and the caregiver who sacrifices to allow a loved one to remain at home.
Amy’s Place is the first freestanding memory café’ in the United States and provides an opportunity for the caregiver and those with Alzheimer’s Disease to socialize, learn and connect with those who share in the journey of caring for someone with dementia.
Amy’s Place is located in Historic Roswell and is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and Sunday for special events. Learn more about Amy’s Place.
