The Alzheimer's Association Mississippi Chapter is dedicated to advancing the care, support, and research to all those affected by Alzheimer's in Mississippi. We offer local support groups, community education, advocacy efforts, and fundraising events throughout the state for anyone looking to become involved. 

Community Forums 

Learn about Alzheimer's, dementia and memory loss in this brief community-focused listening session. We'll review the basics of these conditions, services of the Alzheimer's Association and how we can expand the reach of local programs and services. Bring a friend and share your thoughts about how the Alzheimer's Association can help more people in your community.

We are looking to host forums throughout the state of Mississippi to educate and understand the communities needs regarding this disease.  If you are interested in hosting a forum in your area, please contact Kristen Davis White at KriDavis@alz.org
 

Virtual Education Programs

Being a caregiver doesn't come with an instruction manual, but there are resources available to help. Use the free trainings and workshops on this page to gain caregiving skills and practical advice. Courses also avaiable in spanish.  These courses can also be presented live virtually, by request.  Email KriDavis@alz.org with any speaker requests.



 

Online Caregiver Tools

Our free 24/7 Helpline (800.272.3900), staffed by master’s-level clinicians and specialists, provides confidential support and information to all those affected in over 200 languages.

We host ALZConnected® , an online community where people with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers can ask questions and find support.

Community Resource Finder, a comprehensive database of programs and services, housing and care services, and legal experts, allows people to locate resources in their communities.

Alzheimer's Navigator helps guide Caregivers to answers by creating a personalized action plan and linking you to information, support and local resources.

Early Stage Engagement Program

We have partnered with another local non-profit to address some of the largest challenges for the older adult populations like social isolation, negative aging, and cognitive decay.  Alzheimer's Association and Create Circles present ConnectingAlzMS.  This program will partner college students with older adults who are expereincing memory loss or who are in the early stages of dementia.  The older adult and college student will do more than just chat once a week.  Instead, they will work together to create a meaningful connection and provide a sense of purpose by working on a specific project.  The process of creating and contributing are one of the best ways to provide purpose.  By bringing together the energy of students and the minds of older adults, we are empowering older adults to voice their opinions and produce content for society. Together, we are creating a more connected world.  Sign up at ConnectingAlzMS.com
