Promotores: Community members helping one another
There is a certain irony – and tragedy – to the fact that one of the population groups most at risk for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia is among those least familiar with it and least likely to seek medical help. The Colorado Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association is working to remedy that situation by recruiting a unique group of volunteers: mothers and grandmothers drawn from the Spanish-speaking community, who can help educate their friends and neighbors and introduce them to information, programs and services available to them at no charge.
The Alzheimer's Association leads the way to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia.™ For more information, visit www.alz.org or call the 24/7 Helpline at 800.272.3900.
