Promotores: Community members helping one another
There is a certain irony – and tragedy – to the fact that one of the population groups most at risk for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia is among those least familiar with it and least likely to seek medical help. The Colorado Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association is working to remedy that situation by recruiting a unique group of volunteers: mothers and grandmothers drawn from the Spanish-speaking community, who can help educate their friends and neighbors and introduce them to information, programs and services available to them at no charge.
The Alzheimer's Association is the world's leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's. For more information, visit www.alz.org.
