You are not alone. Many Alaskans face the same challenges.
According to a survey conducted by the Center for Disease Control in cooperation with the State of Alaska, 33,000 Alaskans across our state provide care on a regular basis for loved ones with dementia.
Alzheimer’s Association Alaska is here to help all Alaskans affected by dementia. You don’t have to live on the road system to access our services.
If you have Facebook, join Alaskans like you by searching “Alzheimer’s Association Alaska” and ‘like’ our page to see:
If you don’t have facebook, no worries. You can call the Alzheimer’s Association’s 24/7 Helpline at 1-800-272-3900 for support, and you can become an advocate for Alaskans affected by dementia at https://alz.org/get-involved-now/advocate
Alzheimer’s Association Alaska is fighting back against all forms of dementia by advocating for improved services for affected Alaskans, and funding for dementia research. Our elected officials are listening. Thank you to Representative Young, Senator Murkowski, and Senator Sullivan for voting in support of a historic increase in funding for dementia research.
Our mission is to make sure every Alaskan with dementia and their caregivers have the support they need to live well.
You’re not alone. We’re here to help.
