The Alzheimer’s Association is committed to helping our neighbors, families and local businesses navigate the complexities of Alzheimer’s disease and all other dementia.
No one should face Alzheimer’s alone, especially in a time like this. Please share these no-cost resources with your employees, clients and business partners.
- The Alzheimer’s Association 24/7 helpline (800.272.3900) is available around the clock, 365 days a year. Through this free service, specialists and master’s-level clinicians offer confidential support and information to people living with the disease, caregivers, families and the public. This service accommodates more than 200 languages.
- The Alzheimer’s Association website, alz.org, is a rich resource designed to inform and educate those living with the disease, caregivers, volunteers and professional health care providers.
- The Alzheimer’s Association has COVID-19 tips for dementia caregivers. Most likely, dementia does not increase the risk for COVID-19, just like dementia does not increase the risk for the flu. However, dementia-related behaviors, increased age and common health conditions that often accompany dementia may increase risk.
