For Your Patients & Caregivers

Alzheimer's patient caregiver resources

Before your patients and their families leave your office, share with them the information and tools they need to cope with and manage living with Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Here are some of the best patient resources from the Alzheimer's Association.

On this page:

24/7 Helpline

1.800.272.3900

TDD: 1.866.403.3073

Give your patients and their families the Alzheimer's Association 24/7 Helpline number: 1.800.272.3900. They can call anytime to receive information, support and referrals to local programs and services. Callers who are in crisis are triaged to our free, confidential care consultation provided by master's level clinicians. The 24/7 Helpline also has a language translation service.

Downloadable resources

Educate and connect patients to the Alzheimer's Association all at once. Our pdf formatted resources can be printed out or emailed directly to those affected by Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias.

Patient and caregiver educational packets

Our customized educational packets were developed with the help of people with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers.


Topic sheets

These are our most popular resources. More can be found in our Publications section. Your local chapter may have more foreign language resources.

alz.org

alz.org is the Alzheimer's Association website. It has information about Alzheimer's disease, including symptoms and signs, seven stages, diagnosis, treatment and access to our Green-Field Library. It also has information on related dementias, including MCI and vascular dementia. Your patients and their families can also find their local Alzheimer's Association chapter for support programs and services in their area.

Alzheimer's and Dementia Caregiver Center

The Alzheimer's and Dementia Caregiver Center brings our caregiving information and tools together into one easy-to-navigate site featuring information on early-, late- and middle-stage caregiving and other topics. Within the Caregiver Center, patients and caregivers will find:

  • Safety Center — Information and resources about wandering, driving, making the home safe, and safety products MedicAlert + Safe Return and Comfort Zone.
  • Dementia and Driving Resource Center — Includes video scenarios showing four different families discussing driving and dementia, tips and strategies for planning ahead and handling resistance, and common signs of unsafe driving.
  • ALZConnected — Message boards and online community for people with dementia and caregivers to connect with others to ask questions and share support.
  • Alzheimer's Navigator — The Alzheimer's Association Alzheimer's Navigator develops customized action plans for families and people with dementia based on a series of short surveys.
  • E-Learning Workshops — Free online workshops for people with Alzheimer's and caregivers covering topics such as Alzheimer's basics, financial/legal planning and younger-onset Alzheimer's.

For people with Alzheimer's

Refer your patients with Alzheimer's and dementia to Living with Alzheimer's, our web section just for them. It provides coping tips, plus resources to help them remain active and plan ahead.

Clinical trials

The web- and phone-based Alzheimer's Association TrialMatch® (800.272.3900) is a free, easy-to-use clinical studies matching service that connects individuals with Alzheimer's or dementia, caregivers, healthy volunteers and physicians with current studies.
