NARFE November

It's National Family Caregivers Month, a time when we honor Alzheimer's caregivers, and all caregivers, for their dedication, selflessness and strength. Thanks to the funds you raise through the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, the Association can provide essential resources for people living with Alzheimer's or another dementia and their loved ones and caregivers. From our 24/7 Helpline at 800.272.3900 to our caregiving resources at, your dedication helps provide support for people impacted by Alzheimer's. Thank you for your ongoing commitment and partnership!

Music and art can enrich the lives of people living with Alzheimer's
Music and art allow for self-expression and engagement, even after Alzheimer's or another dementia has progressed. Studies have shown music may reduce agitation and improve behavioral issues common in the middle-stages of the disease, and art can provide an opportunity for self-expression. Learn more.

Respite care can help Alzheimer's caregivers recharge health
Respite care provides caregivers a temporary break while a person living with Alzheimer's continues to receive care in a safe environment. Using respite services can support and strengthen your ability to be a caregiver. Learn more.

Incontinence is common in people living with Alzheimer's
Many people in the later stages of living with Alzheimer's or another dementia will experience incontinence, a loss of bladder or bowel control. While incontinence may cause feelings of embarrassment, how a caregiver responds can help the person retain a sense of dignity. Learn more.

Latina researcher inspired by her community to fight Alzheimer's
Latina nurse, professor and researcher Adriana Perez is always looking to give back to her community. On our blog, she talks about her efforts to address inequities in Alzheimer's research: "I know there is more that we can do, especially by making cognitive health research more inclusive of Latinos and other historically excluded populations."
