You can also call us for emotional support –– as often as you need. We know that living with Alzheimer’s can be overwhelming at times. Remember, we are here for you – all day, every day. Reach us at 1.800.272.3900.
Care Consultation is a confidential, individualized service offered by the Alzheimer's Association. Assistance with problem-solving and identification of resources are available to persons with memory loss and their families.
Caregiver stress is very serious and very real. Relief, or a “timeout”, from day-to-day responsibilities is available through our respite program. The program provides primary family caregivers with supportive counseling, scholarships and resource assistance to obtain respite from the demands of caring for someone 24 hours a day. This critically important service is essential in helping caregivers to sustain their own physical and emotional health.
Support groups provide a forum for family members and caregivers to share feelings, concerns and information, and for spouses to support each other in coping with the effects of the disease.
The Alzheimer’s Association message boards and chat rooms provide an online community for persons with Alzheimer's, caregivers and care providers. Our message boards have thousands of registered members from around the United States and thousands more who refer to the stories and information that is available 24 hours a day.
The Alzheimer's Association offers dozens of fact sheets and brochures.
The Alzheimer's Association has a broad selection of materials available in its resource library. Materials may be checked out in person during business hours or requested via telephone. For more information, please call 1.800.272.3900.

Assistance is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
