Sharing Our Stories

You are invited to share your personal story related to Alzheimer's as caregiver, spouse, friend, son, daughter, sister, brother, grandchild, medical professional--whatever your relationship--or as the individual with Alzheimer's.

    "I was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2004, and since that time have experienced firsthand the support given by Alzheimer's of Glynn/Brunswick to those afflicted with the disease, and to the caregiver as well. I also see the need for more education about this disease. In the past, the trend was to isolate the patient. Now we know that with appropriate attention, communication and activities, individuals with Alzheimer's may function better and remain active and socially involved for a longer period. With your support, more programs can be offered, and more can be accomplished to serve our community.

    "Your contribution will make it possible to carry out the organization's mission to educate the public and build community support systems to assist those facing the challenges of this devastating terminal disease. Please keep the mission and good work of AGB at heart. We need your support."

Lamar's Story

Our dear friend, advocate, volunteer and past Board president, Lamar Floyd, passed away in December 2014, just shy of his 90th birthday. In November 2014, AGB honored Lamar's service to the organization with Lamar Floyd Appreciation Day, adding his name to our Volunteer Wall of Fame as Star Volunteer. Up until his death, unrelated to Alzheimer's, Lamar was actively involved in advocating for AGB, attending every event at AGB House, adding his energy, enthusiasm and warmth, always the life of the party. Lamar's contribution to AGB is immeasurable. We loved him, and we miss him.

"Where prescription medicine falls short, these Alzheimer’s patients show astonishing reactions when music is played for them. "Alive Inside" has set forth to create a film showing music's ability to touch our souls. Their cameras reveal there is a healing power in music that can help combat memory loss and bring a sense of relief to those suffering from Alzheimer's."
