The Alzheimer's Association New England regional chapters have developed resources to help those with Alzheimer's and dementia and their caregivers navigate the challenges presented by the COVID-19 crisis. We have also included information on our advocacy efforts, and ways you can get involved in the fight against Alzheimer's.
The Alzheimer’s Association, Maine Chapter serves the entire state and is here to help. We provide education and support to all those facing Alzheimer’s and other dementias throughout Maine communities, including those living with the disease, caregivers, families, and health care professionals. We advocate for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer’s disease and all other dementia. We work to advance critical research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.
Currently, more than 29,000 people in Maine are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and over 46,000 caregivers provide 68,000,000 hours in unpaid care. Dementia caregivers are providing 20% more care than in 2009. Visit alz.org/facts
