Support groups are a vital service offered by the Alzheimer's Association; in fact, the Association actually began as a support group. For some people attending a support group can be difficult at first, but the benefits of meeting and learning from fellow caregivers can soon dissolve any discomfort.
Providing care for a loved one with Alzheimer's can be a full-time job. Respite Care is an option for those who care for a person with mild to moderate Alzheimer's or related dementia, and need a few hours a week to themselves. Many of these programs receive training and support from the Capital of Texas Chapter.
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 1.800.367.2132.
Our chapter puts out a monthly newsletter full of news about Alzheimer's research and advocacy, tips for caregiving, a calendar of events, and much more. To sign up for our newsletter, please e-mail Amelia Frank at email@example.com.
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. Many programs allow you to earn CEUs.
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.
