NARFE November
November is National Family Caregivers Month, a time for us to honor the selflessness of the 16 million Americans who provide care for those living with dementia. While caregivers are superheroes, even superheroes can't do it alone. Whether it's providing daily caregiving, participating in decision making or caring about a person with the disease, the Alzheimer's Association provides resources to help, like our 24/7 Helpline at 800.272.3900 and caregiving resources at And there's still time to join us in celebrating the strength and dedication of dementia caregivers, especially during these uncertain times. You can raise funds for essential resources like these when you register for the national NARFE Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's® team.

Lui says, "In telling the stories of America's young caregivers, we shine a light on some of the amazing things they are doing." Learn more.

Brain injury may increase Alzheimer's risk
New research presented at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference Neuroscience Next meeting suggests that people who have a violent blow or jolt to the head — known as traumatic brain injury (TBI) — may be at an increased risk of Alzheimer's-related brain changes. Researchers said TBI-related amyloid buildup may play a role in the development of memory, thinking and behavior changes typical of dementia. Learn more.

Residential care may fit the needs of someone living with Alzheimer's
A person living with Alzheimer's or another dementia may require more care than can be provided at home. The best option may be a residential community selected based on the appropriate level of care the person needs. Learn more.

Talking about an Alzheimer's diagnosis is an important step
If you've been diagnosed with Alzheimer's or another dementia, it's normal to experience fear or discomfort about sharing your diagnosis. However, talking openly with those you trust can help educate them and encourage them to offer their support. Learn more.
