Ohio Missing Adult Alert

In response to growing numbers of missing adults with memory impairment, the state of Ohio has passed the "Ohio Missing Adult Alert" program which went into effect June 20, 2008.  This alert system is similar to Amber Alert in that emergency personnel across the state will be notified through this system in the event that an adult with a mental impairment has gone missing.  To learn more about the program, please click here.

Welcome to Alzheimer's Association TrialMatch™, a free service that makes it easy for people with Alzheimer's, caregivers, families and physicians to locate clinical trials based on personal criteria (diagnosis, stage of disease) and location.

Families use it to tell everyone when they visit, when they plan to visit and how the visit went. No more guessing, no more overlapped visits, better care for loved ones.
