|24/7 Helpline||Lending Library|
Thousands of times a year, our Helpline telephone rings and callers ask questions like these:
- "My dad was just diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and I don't really know much about it. Do you have some information you can send me so that I can be prepared to help my mom?"
- "My husband was diagnosed with Vascular dementia 3 years ago. I thought I could handle this alone, but I'm beginning to think a support group would be good for me. Can you tell me what's available in my area?"
- "My siblings and I want to learn more about Alzheimer's disease. My mom was diagnosed about 6 months ago and her doctor referred us to you. Do you have any educational programs we can attend together?"
Where can I get more information about Alzheimer's disease and the Alzheimer's Association?
You can visit our office at 50 E 91st St., Suite 100, Indianapolis, IN. Free parking is available. Also see below for information on our lending library.
