Lecanemab is the second FDA-approved treatment that addresses the underlying biology of Alzheimer's and changes the course of the disease in a meaningful way for people in the early stages.
Currently, in Texas more than 400,000 are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and over 1,449,000 family and friends are providing care.
Serving Amarillo, El Paso, Lubbock, Permian Basin, San Angelo and surrounding communities, the Alzheimer’s Association West Texas Chapter is here to help. Through the generous support of donors, volunteers and staff, we provide education and care and support services to all those facing Alzheimer’s and other dementias at no charge to individuals and families living with the disease, care partners, and clinicians. We are also committed to advocating for the needs and rights of those facing dementia and advancing critical research toward methods of early diagnosis, accessible treatment, risk reduction, and, ultimately, a cure.
Join us for our free caregiver conference. Topics cover Alzheimer's vs. Dementia, when to get a cognitive exam, Palliative vs. Hospice, legal and ethical considerations and more. Open to all family caregivers, nurses and healthcare professionals. CEU's for nurses. Lunch provided.
Every day is The Longest Day in the lives of those living with Alzheimer's or dementia and their caregivers. View stories from our West Texas board members, volunteers, and local partners as they honor their loved ones this Winter Solstice.
