If Alzheimer’s is in your life, help is within your reach.  AFA’s National Toll-Free Helpline is open seven days a week and staffed entirely by licensed social workers specifically trained in dementia care.  The Helpline is accessible by phone, email and web chat to assist callers with topics such as:

  • Signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia-related illnesses
  • Caring for someone living with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia-related illness
  • Building a care team and support network
  • Steps caregivers can take to care for themselves
  • Information about brain health and wellness
  • Strategies to discuss memory changes
  • Connecting with local support services

No question is too big or small.
