About James L. West Alzheimer Center

Location:

1111 Summit Avenue, Fort Worth, TX 76102, US

Mission Statement

"The James L. West Center is a not-for-profit organization which serves persons with Alzheimer's Disease and related disorders and their families in a compassionate and spiritual environment. The center is dedicated to providing individualized care and support to enhance the quality and dignity of each person's life throughout the course of the disease. By participating in meaningful research and sharing its experience and knowledge, the Center is committeed to enriching lives now and in the future."

Description

The James L West Alzheimer Center was founded to honor the memory of Fort Worth business leader and philanthropist James L. West. When Mr. West was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, he and his wife shared a wish that a center devoted to the care of persons with dementia be made available for north Texans. To honor that wish and his memory, in 1991 Mrs. West directed the James L. and Eunice P. West Charitable Trust, through First Presbyterian Church of Fort Worth, to provide major funding for construction of a nondenominational facility dedicated solely to caring for persons with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. The Center's philosophy of compassionate, affordable care for its residents and families is a result of Mrs. West's tribute to her husband and continues to guide the decision-making of the board and the staff. In addition to residential and adult day care services, the center serves as a training site for local students of medical professions.
