Who Does Your Donation Benefit?
People With Alzheimer’s & Their Caregivers
Persons with Alzheimer’s & their Caregivers, specifically, financially challenged families and individuals as well as qualified not for profits in the U.S. and throughout the world.
People with Alzheimer’s often need 24/7 supervision and support. This responsibility usually is that of family members. These generous people are known as caregivers. There are over 16 million caregivers in America today, 75% of whom are women.
Due to the constant help they provide, the majority of caregivers stop working full time and on average lose over $10,000 in annual income. This financial burden only adds to the day-to-day stress of caring for loved ones with this debilitating disease.
So caregivers, in addition to those with Alzheimer’s, need your help.
Please donate today. Their livelihood depends on it.
Where Does Your Donation Go?
Your Donation Teaches Caregivers
Your funds are used to provide, FREE of charge, The Alzheimer’s Caregiver®, an on-line subscription program that translates the Alzheimer’s care best practices into “hands on” practices that help caregivers understand what is needed and how best to deliver it. The materials are in an interactive internet format website that is available in both English and Spanish and is accessible to caregivers around the world.
The Alzheimer’s Caregiver® was developed by a select group of physicians and nurses supported by multiple grants from the National Institutes of Health.
How Does Your Donation Help The Future Of Alzheimer’s Care?
