Talking about an Alzheimer's diagnosis is an important step
If you've been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or another dementia, it's normal to experience fear or discomfort about sharing your diagnosis. However, talking openly with those you trust can help educate them and encourage them to offer their support. Learn more.

What's the difference between dementia and Alzheimer's?
Dementia is a syndrome — a group of symptoms, not a disease. Alzheimer's is a degenerative brain disease and the most common cause of dementia. We have answers to your questions about Alzheimer's and dementia. Learn more.

Facing Alzheimer's may cause family tension
Alzheimer's can bring out many strong emotions in the person living with the disease as well as caregivers. As the disease progresses, caregiving issues may magnify family conflicts. Our tips can help families cope. Learn more.

Resources may be available to help pay for Alzheimer's care
Many families make great financial sacrifices to help care for a family member living with Alzheimer's. Resources may be available to help cover these costs both now and in the future. Learn more.
