Meet George Worthington, JABA’s Coordinator of Memory Care

Late last year, a nearly $1 million federal grant to the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services launched a pilot project between University of Virginia and JABA to establish a coordinated care system for persons with dementia and their caregivers. A short time later George Worthington became JABA’s Coordinator of Memory Care, helping to spearhead this vital collaboration with the UVA’s Memory and Aging Care Clinic to improve the quality of dementia care in Virginia.
