For African Americans
The battle against Alzheimer's begins with understanding the disease. Visit the Alzheimer's Association website for valuable information about warning signs, brain health, treatments, resources and much more. Every month, the Alzheimer's Association offers informative programs on a variety of topics. Check the Education Calendar to see upcoming programs in your area.
Whether you are a person with dementia or caring for someone who does, the Alzheimer's Association is here to help. Support groups are an effective way to learn from the experience of others. The 24/7 Helpline provides access to a knowledgeable, caring person any time you call. The staff at the North Central Texas Chapter includes people able to help you navigate the challenges of caring for a loved one with dementia, including care consultation, case management and, for those taking care of a loved one at home in Tarrant County, the REACH program.
Community is important. The Alzheimer’s Association often takes part in local events such as health fairs to show support to different nonprofit organizations that help keep the community healthy and safe. The largest annual event planned especially for the African American community is the African American Caregiver Seminar.
The Alzheimer’s Association offers services to help those affected by the disease. Please make good use of these services and put yourself at peace knowing that you truly are doing everything you can for your loved ones.
