More than 15 million family members and friends are caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. These individuals take on new roles and responsibilities that are challenging and often overwhelming.
Right now, you can help.
With your support, the Alzheimer’s Association can help these families adapt to life with Alzheimer’s. We provide resources and information to help them understand the disease, make more confident decisions and manage the stresses of caregiving.
Please help us care for these unsung heroes by giving as generously as you can today.
If you’re caring for a person with Alzheimer’s, make sure your home is safe and supportive. You can take steps to adapt your home to the person’s changing needs. Be sure to evaluate home safety measures regularly, as new issues may arise.
