Our Caregiver Testimonials


"I have participated in many of the wonderful services ADRC has to offer from Savvy Caregiver to the Men's Support Group. They have been a lifesaver in the challenges we all face as caregivers. I am beyond grateful to ADRC and believe there is no organization quite like it in Central Florida."
Judy's Husband


“ADRC has become my lifeline. When my mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, I was scared and had no idea where to turn. Through ADRC, I have found people who understand; a community that cares.”
Carmen's Daughter


“Love, Education & Support are the three legs of the stool you need to remain steady as you journey alongside a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. This is what ADRC offers, and it’s life-saving to have them to lean on just as our loved ones lean on us.”
Ron's Wife


“ADRC has been a lifeline for me and gives me guidance, support and compassion during a time when I didn’t know where else to turn. I’m not sure where I would be without them.”
Nick's Husband


“You are never really prepared for being a caregiver, but ADRC provides the education, support and love you need throughout your journey. The more I learned about being a caregiver, the more love I could share with Nancy and the more I could find the moments of joy in the hard times.”
Nancy's Husband


"ADRC has been a godsend in providing support in love and care for caregivers through sympathy and more importantly, empathy."
