We are excited to announce that NARFE has a new goal, $14 million by 2020! We are so grateful for the support from NARFE and all of its members — thank you!

This month, the Alzheimer's Association released 2019 Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures. Published annually, this report illustrates the devastating impact of Alzheimer's disease. Later this month, over 1,000 advocates will gather in Washington, D.C., for the Alzheimer's Impact Movement (AIM) Advocacy Forum. Together, we will urge Congress to continue to make Alzheimer's a national priority. The generosity of NARFE and its members helps make possible these and all of our efforts to end this disease. We are so grateful for your support.

Facts and Figures report examines Alzheimer's disease burden
2019 Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures reveals the burden of Alzheimer's and dementia on individuals, caregivers, government and the nation's health care system. This edition's special report shows that only half of people 65 and older are being assessed for thinking and memory issues, and much fewer receive routine assessments. Learn more.
Three days can make a big impact in the fight against Alzheimer's
We've made significant progress in the fight against Alzheimer's, including historic research funding increases and the BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer's Act being signed into law. Help us continue the momentum by attending the 2019 Alzheimer's Impact Movement Advocacy Forum March 31-April 2 in our nation's capital. An inspiring event packed with education and networking, the Forum prepares advocates to deliver their powerful stories to elected officials. Learn more.

Caregiver makes it her mission to fight Alzheimer's
African Americans are under-represented in Alzheimer's and dementia clinical trials. Aiming to overcome the stigma attached to such research in her community, Jacquelyn Patterson, who's caring for three of her sisters living with dementia, is currently enrolled in a clinical trial. Learn more.
Caregivers can adapt to the needs of a person living with Alzheimer's
A person living with Alzheimer's or another dementia will eventually need assistance with daily activities. By using creativity and caregiving skills, you can adapt routines as needs change. Our resources can help you with ideas and ways to connect with other caregivers. Learn more.
