We're so grateful to NARFE's dedicated members and your passion for a future without Alzheimer's. Thanks to your support, the Alzheimer's Association® is truly leading the way to improve long-term care for those living with Alzheimer's or another dementia. A recent article in U.S. News & World Report discusses what constitutes quality memory care in assisted living communities. The article cites the Alzheimer's Association Dementia Care Practice Recommendations, 56 evidence-based best practices for person-centered care. We are only able to continue this crucial work because of passionate NARFE supporters like you. Thank you for your continued partnership in the fight to end Alzheimer's!

Home safety is important for a person living with Alzheimer's
People living with Alzheimer's or another dementia are at increased risk of injury or harm in certain areas of the home. We have tips on how to take precautions to create a safe environment and help maximize independence. Learn more.

Work with your doctor and ask questions
A person living with Alzheimer's or another dementia and their family should plan ahead to get the most out of medical appointments. Be open and honest when discussing care; if you don't understand something, ask your doctor until you do. Learn more.

People living with dementia may repeat statements and questions
People living with dementia may do or say something over and over or undo something that has just been finished. When a person living with Alzheimer's or another dementia asks questions repeatedly, they may be trying to express a specific concern or coping with frustration, anxiety or insecurity. Learn more.

Specialized support groups available for caregivers
Support groups help individuals develop skills to solve problems, gain resources and build social relationships. The Alzheimer's Association hosts meetings for specific audiences, such as women of faith and male caregivers. Many additional support groups meet each month. Find one that works for you and join by Zoom or by phone. Learn more.
