The Alzheimer's Association Minnesota-North Dakota provides support, education, training and other resources to increase knowledge and to support those facing Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. We are here to help.

Support

Helpline

The Alzheimer's Association 24/7 Helpline serves people with memory loss, caregivers, health care professionals and the public, providing reliable information and support to all those who need assistance. Call us toll-free anytime day or night at 800.272.3900.

Funding for the Minnesota-North Dakota 24/7 Helpline is provided in part by Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America, their employees and their company vendors.

Support Groups

We offer peer and professionally led support groups for caregivers and others living with Alzheimer's disease. All support groups are facilitated by trained individuals. Many locations offer specialized groups for children, individuals with younger-onset and early-stage Alzheimer's, adult caregivers and others with specific needs. In some areas, specially designed Memory Clubs are available for people with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and early dementia and their care partners.
