Alzheimer’s Orange County is a non-profit organization that aims to help people in Orange County that deal with dementia or Alzheimer’s. The organization offers a wide range of services such as consultations, education, and programs and events that can help people and their families. It also provides solutions such as the Healthy Aging Center ACACIA, which is a community-based service that serves people with dementia with daytime assistance and fulfills both their social and medical needs.

Even though the center was closed in 2020 due to the pandemic and coronavirus, it reopened again in 2021 and provides an adult day program that includes transportation, breakfast, therapeutic activities and many others. The health and social support offered at the center enable people to live at home instead of at nursing facilities for their benefit and improved quality of life.
