Resources for Alzheimer’s Caregivers
Alzheimer’s disease can have a profound effect on families and caregivers, in particular. If you are caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or related dementias, you are in good company. About 140,000 North Carolinians today are affected by Alzheimer’s; a number that is expected to quadruple by 2025.
Fortunately, there are many local, state and national resources available to help you and your family cope. Here are just a few.
Alzheimer’s North Carolina (ALZ NC) provides family support, community education, public awareness and supports research for the prevention, cure and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. ALZ NC serves 51 of North Carolina’s 100 counties–from the Triangle to the coast.
