We offer a variety of support groups for all individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease. Groups are facilitated by trained volunteers. Many locations offer specialized groups for children, those with early-onset and early-stage Alzheimer’s, adult caregivers and others with specific needs.
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.
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.
We offer many educational programs each year that address the specific interests of the general public, individuals with the disease and their families.
We offer classroom and Web-based training for healthcare supervisors and direct care workers in assisted living and nursing homes.
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.

In a move to significantly improve the safety of your loved ones, MedicAlert® has created an alliance with the Alzheimer's Association, a world leader in Alzheimer's research and support, to bring you MedicAlert® + Alzheimer's Association Safe Return®.
MedicAlert® + Safe Return® offers you the best of both worlds:
- Assistance when a person wanders or is lost
- Access to vital medical information in the time of need
When a person with dementia wonders or becomes lost, one call immediately activates a community support network to help reunite the lost person with his or her caregiver. When a person is found, a citizen or law official calls the toll-free 24-hour emergency response number on the identification product and the individual's family or caregivers are contacted. The nearest Alzheimer's Association office provides support during search and rescue efforts. In addition, should medical attention be required, access to a personal health record is immediately available.
We maintain updated information on home care, adult day care, care coordination, assisted living, skilled nursing facilities, eldercare lawyers and transportation available in the community. Our staff and trained professionals can help assess whether a specific care provider meets the needs of an individual with Alzheimer’s.
