The Alzheimer’s Association, St. Louis Chapter, has a long history and strong commitment to quality care and education. A corps of Alzheimer’s Association Community Educators (AACEs) operate with the goals to raise awareness, provide education, and expand the reach and services of the St. Louis Chapter.
The following core programs are offered free of charge to community audiences:
Know the 10 Signs
Early diagnosis is important. Learn the difference between normal aging, the warning signs of dementia, and information on how to seek diagnosis.
The Basics: Memory Loss, Dementia and Alzheimer’s
Comprehensive overview of memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease that includes information on diagnosis, treatment, and resources.
Living with Alzheimer’s for Caregivers (3 part series / 90 minute modules)
This workshop provides caregivers with information about providing care, communicating, and available resources throughout the stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
Find a Program
Host a Program
Partner with the Alzheimer’s Association Community Educators (AACE) to bring core programs to your community. All programs last a minimum of 45 minutes and a maximum of 90 minutes and require an audience of at least 10 individuals that have pre-registered and confirmed 72 hours in advance. We ask that all programs are scheduled 6 to 8 weeks in advance, open to the public, and widely marketed.
While raising awareness and providing education is key, there are no known ways to prevent, treat or cure Alzheimer’s disease. We are passionate about impacting the course of this disease through advancing research and offering quality services to families. As a host, support our full mission through a monetary donation (suggested $75) or joining our Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
If unable meet the above criteria, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information for guided support and additional resources.
Note: At this time, Living with Alzheimer’s for Caregivers is offered by special request. Please email email@example.com if you are interested hosting this intensive caregiver workshop.
