A new care and support resource, exclusive for NARFE members!
The Alzheimer's Association relies on the generosity of our partners, like NARFE and its members, to help fight this devastating disease. With over 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer's and over 16 million providing unpaid care, the disease impacts many, including NARFE members, and their friends and family. In order to best provide NARFE and its members with easy-to-access Alzheimer's and dementia care and support resources, we have created a new webpage specifically for NARFE members. Please check out the new webpage to find local community resources, disease education, our interactive care-plan tool Alzheimer's Navigator, your local Association chapter and NARFE Alzheimer's Association Regional Coordinator, and more. Visit our new page to find out more!
