What We Offer

Helpline

The Alzheimer's Association Helpline operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in more than 200 languages. Our staff is highly trained and knowledgeable about all aspects of Alzheimer’s disease. Call us if you have questions about:
  • Alzheimer’s disease or memory loss, medications and treatment options, brain health and care options
  • How the Association can help you
  • Caregiving tips and respite care options
  • Services available in your community and referrals
You can also call us for emotional support –– as often as you need. We know that living with Alzheimer’s can be overwhelming at times. Remember, we are here for you –– all day, every day.

Support programs

We offer a monthly telephone caregiver support group facilitated by trained staff. In addition, our online social networking community ALZConnected® provides a safe place for people to connect with others in similar situations.

Message boards

The Alzheimer’s Association message boards and chat rooms provide an online community for persons with Alzheimer's, caregivers and care providers. Our message boards have thousands of registered members from around the United States and thousands more who refer to the stories and information that is available 24 hours a day. Join the Alzheimer’s Association online community.
 

Publications

The Alzheimer’s Association offers dozens of fact sheets and brochures. Click here for a listing.

We also maintain a variety of educational materials (brochures, videos, audiotapes and books) on topics related to Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. To learn more about our library, call us at 1.800.272.3900.

Educational programs

We offer many educational programs each year that address the specific interests of the general public, individuals with the disease and their families.
 

Professional training

We offer classroom and Web-based training for healthcare supervisors and direct care workers in assisted living and nursing homes. Many programs allow you to earn CEUs.
 

Multilingual information

Alzheimer’s disease and other disorders that cause dementia know no boundaries. Many individuals and families in ethnic and cultural minority groups are in need of solid information about Alzheimer’s disease and health resources.

MedicAlert ® with 24/7 Wandering Support

The Alzheimer’s Association, in collaboration with MedicAlert Foundation, provides membership plans
with 24/7 Wandering Support, a nationwide emergency response service for individuals living with
Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia who wander or have a medical emergency. If a member
wanders and is missing, one phone call immediately activates MedicAlert’s Emergency Response
Team to help reunite the person living with dementia with his or her family. Members can choose from
a variety of ID products, including bracelets and necklaces.
