The Alzheimer's Association, Florida Gulf Coast Chapter serves 16 counties with education and support as well as raising funds for research.

Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for those affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

Our Florida Gulf Coast Chapter is here to help. We provide education and support to all those facing Alzheimer's and other dementias throughout our community, including those living with the disease, caregivers, health care professionals and families.

We are also committed to advocating for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer's disease and advancing critical research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.

The Alzheimer's Association is here all day, every day for people facing Alzheimer's disease through our free 24/7 Helpline: 800.272.3900. Our Helpline provides reliable information and support to all those who need assistance, such as individuals living with memory loss, Alzheimer's or other dementia, caregivers, health care professionals and the public.

The state of Florida has the second highest incidence of Alzheimer's. Within the 16 counties that comprise the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter, the Florida Department of Elder Affairs estimates that in 2016 there were 177,489 people living with Alzheimer's disease. That means that 1 in every 33 people of all ages has Alzheimer's disease in areas served by our chapter. These numbers do not include the snowbirds who reside in the region during the winter months.

The Florida Gulf Coast Chapter meets the challenge of such overwhelming numbers through a dedicated staff out of four regional offices and the Memory Mobile, a mobile classroom and office, that serves rural and inner city communities.

The James Museum has its roots in the deeply felt passion for art and culture shared by co-founders Tom and Mary James, and in the couple's love for St. Petersburg, the city where they live.

Years ago, when their travels took them out West, they were captivated by the art, landscape and wildlife. The art of action and attention to place created by contemporary artists greatly moved them, and they began buying pieces not only for their personal pleasure, but also to help the artists earn a living. These two dedicated patrons of the arts collected works in oil, in ink, in stone; works that define genres yet defy labels; works that evoke the spirit of a wide open frontier and the beauty of life in the wild. Since their first acquisition, a vast artistic legacy has grown - one populated by emerging artists and living legends and filled with tribal tradition and classical finesse.

In building this splendid home for a part of their vast personal collection of Western and wildlife art, Tom and Mary also have succeeded in their aim to share their vision and devotion to art with you and thousands of others.
