Alz Connected


The Alzheimer's Association message boards and chat rooms provide an online community for person 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.


TrialMatch®



When you join a clinical trial, you have an opportunity to participate in vital reserach that could change the course of this disease and improve the lives of all those it effects. People with Alzheimer's, caregivers, and healthy volunteers are all needed to participate in Alzheimer's and dementia research.

 



If an individual with Alzheimer's or a related dementia wanders and becomes lost, caregivers can call the 24-hour emergency response line (1.800.625.3780) to report it. A community support network will be activated, including local Alzheimer Association chapters and law enforcement agencies, to help reunite the person who wandered with the caregiver or a family member. With this service, critical medical information will be provided to emergency responders when needed.


Comfort Zone

Comfort Zone is a comprehensive web-based location management service powered by Omnilink. Families can monitor the person with Alzheimer's from a secured website and receive alerts when the person leaves a preset safety zone. This comprehensive service includes enrollment in MedicAlert® + Alzheimer's Association Safe Return®and access to a 24/7 monitoring center to help you with location management if you are unable to get on the Internet.
