Help & Hope

Though impacting more than 5 million individuals in the U.S. — Alzheimer’s tends to be a silent disease. It’s silent, and often lonely, because very few know where to turn, what to say, or how to help. Sadly, those living with the difficulties of Alzheimer’s are frustrated, and, even guiltridden, by their own emotional struggles. We’re thankful to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way. Today, there’s much help and hope for those living with Alzheimer’s — and those loving someone through this challenging disease. At the Alzheimer’s Community Resource Center, it’s our privilege to walk alongside of you, giving you the resources and encouragement you need.
