Families Facing Alzheimer’s Need You Now More Than Ever

Kids and Teens


Alzheimer’s changes the lives of everyone it touches.​ You are not alone.
 
When a friend or family member has Alzheimer’s disease, you may feel upset, confused or scared. Some people with early-stage Alzheimer’s may forget words or not remember your name from time to time. But, when you spend time with people with late-stage Alzheimer’s, it is easy to see that something serious is going on. People with Alzheimer’s disease are not acting like this because they don’t care about you. Changes deep inside their brains are destroying the centers that control remembering, thinking and feeling. Learning about Alzheimer’s disease can help you understand what to expect and how to connect with the person you care about.
