AFA-CS: Asociación Provincial de Familiares de personas con Enfermedad de Alzheimer y otras demencias

The idea of creating an association arises from the concern of a group of relatives with a person with Alzheimer's disease in their homes who did not know how to deal with the disease due to lack of official information.

Currently AFA Castellón is managing 4 specific Day Centers for people with Alzheimer's disease. It has 85 professionals working for the collective in the province of Castellón
