The Alzheimer’s Association is the premier organization and advocate for families dealing with Alzheimer’s disease. The organization’s 24/7 helpline- which is 800-272-3900 - connects individuals to a live person.
One part of the Alzheimer’s Association’s mission is to provide care and support to all affected. The organization does that through support groups, education programs, referrals to community organizations, help with enrollment in clinical trials and information that can help people better understand the stages of the disease.
The Association also has social workers who can provide individualized education and planning, and an online community resource finder that can help people identify housing options, medical services or community services. For more information, go to alz.org/nwohio.
