Alzheimer's & Dementia Resource Center's focus is on "the forgotten victim," the caregiver, coping with a difficult long-term disease as well as isolation, depression and stress. By assisting families in their care giving role with a wide variety of services, ADRC's goal is to increase the quality of life to patients and family members by reducing caregiver stress and patient abuse, promoting caregiver wellness, providing disease-specific education and support programs and improving overall patient care. The other important aspect of Alzheimer's & Dementia Resource Center's mission is finding a cure for Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. ADRC has a contract with the state of Florida's Brain Bank program to coordinate enrollment and brain autopsies for a 22-county area, working with leading medical facilities such as Orlando Health. The program coordinates the donation of brain tissue of those who have died with Alzheimer's and related diseases, thus providing national and worldwide scientists with access to rapid retrieval tissue for research studies. The program also provides families with closure through a definitive patient diagnosis and helping them understand their potential genetic risk of contacting dementia. Presently, only a brain autopsy at the time of death can confirm that an individual definitely suffered from Alzheimer's disease or one of the other 200 forms of dementia.

Conductive Education Center of Orlando Inc
4,617 children living with motor disabilities reside within a 25 miles' radius of the Conductive Education Center of Orlando (CECO). With only one other area organization focused on providing services to children with Cerebral palsy, 75% are restricted to limited educational options that integrate only 1 or 2 hours of therapy each week resulting over time to deterioration in reaching educational and intellectual milestones and loss of essential physicality. For these children, a CP diagnosis can mean a lifetime of diminished opportunities. At CECO, from inception, we have been committed to the principal that no child should have to spend their day in a wheelchair and that instead, disabled students should be surrounded by stimulating educational options that integrate physical, cognitive and social emotional development. It is our mission to "transform the lives of children with motor disabilities" and create options for them and their families that provide for their greatest opportunity to achieve new levels of independence. At CECO we have a saying, "It's not impossible, it's I'Mpossible!"
