The Center has various programs that can provide help with this heartbreaking illness, including Brain Works, an on-going social programs for those affected by dementia. Lead facilitator, Tally Grazi, creates a nurturing atmosphere filled with upbeat group activities that engage each participant at his/her best capability. We offer caregivers support groups and educational programs with experts who provide invaluable information for managing the difficult financial, emotional and behavioral challenges of this illness.

You can help the Center to continue and expand our invaluable and much needed services. Donations may be made to the Altoon Tunie Sutton Endowment Fund in the name of loved ones you wish to honor or those whose legacy you wish to remember.

The Altoon Tunie Sutton Endowment Fund was established by Marily Chira to honor the legacy of her beloved sister, Altoon Tunie Sutton, a community member who consistently gave to those in need and helped create the first caregivers support group at the SCC. This fund ensures in perpetuity the SCC’s commitment to provide supportive services for this population.

The more contributions received, the larger the endowment and the greater the proportion of funds available to meet the increasing demand for services.
