Support Programs

Alzheimer's Association support programs provide people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, their caregivers and others affected by the disease the opportunity to exchange information as well as develop methods and skills to solve problems.

Support program participants are able to cultivate mutual support systems and social relationships while learning about available resources. For a full schedule of learning and support opportunities, visit the Education Programs page.

The Alzheimer’s Association 24/7 Helpline (800.272.3900) is available around the clock, 365 days a year. Through this free service, specialists and master’s-level clinicians offer confidential support and information to people living with dementia, caregivers, families and the public.
