It’s a whole new reality – it’s something you must fully immerse yourself in to understand.

Life with Alzheimer’s disease is different for everyone, but one thing stands true across all experiences: it involves the family.

You are not alone in this journey. Here are some helpful resources as you navigate the world of Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s Association

The Alzheimer’s Association provides support, research, and local resources to help family caregivers and individuals with this disease. Find out the signs of Alzheimer’s, learn treatment options, and locate support groups near you at alz.org.

Join us in making a difference! Many of our Avamere communities participate in the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s, organized by the Alzheimer’s Association. Join your local walk to support the find for a cure.

Alzheimers.gov

Alzheimers.gov is a U.S. government portal for information on Alzheimer’s from the National Institute on Aging. Get answers about Alzheimer’s, stay up to date on research, and find resources for healthcare professionals.

BrightFocus Foundation

The BrightFocus Foundation offers helpful information for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease as well as their family members. Turn to this resource to understand Alzheimer’s disease, find out how to keep an active mind, and learn how to care for someone with Alzheimer’s. Visit them at brightfocus.org/alzheimers.
