This voluntary organization sponsors public-education programs and offers supportive services to patients and families who are coping with Alzheimer’s disease. Its twenty-four-hour toll-free hotline provides information about Alzheimer’s disease and links families with nearby chapters, which are familiar with community resources and can offer practical suggestions for daily living.
This organization funds research to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and works with hospitals and other institutions to create facilities to care for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. Its center in Los Alamitos, California, offers long-term care exclusively to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. The centers are planned in Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
