Overview

24/7 HELPLINE – 800.272.3900

The Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

Care and Support
We work on a national and local level to provide care and support for all those affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

Research
As the largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s research, the Association is committed to advancing vital research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.

Advocacy
The Association is the leading voice for Alzheimer’s disease advocacy, fighting for critical Alzheimer’s research and care initiatives at the state and federal level.

The Chapter delivers programs and services to help people with dementia and their caregivers throughout North Central Texas:

• ALZTalks
Help members of your church, community or civic group better understand dementia and Alzheimer’s disease

• Education Programs
The North Central Texas Chapter offers a range of education programs to meet the needs of families dealing with dementia

• Early Stage Social Engagement
Being socially active promotes brain health in just about everyone. For people with a diagnosis of dementia, socializing regularly is a mood lifter and helps avoid feelings of isolation and depression. Find out more about social engagement programs like the Friday Group and Grace Memory Cafe. https://www.alz.org/northcentraltexas/helping_you/the_friday_group

• REACH
Unique to the North Central Texas Chapter, Resources for Enhancing Alzheimer’s Caregiver Health (REACH) offers individualized caregiver support.

• Memories in the Making
The Alzheimer’s Association art program for people with dementia brings the joy of creative self expression to people with cognitive impairment.

• Volunteer
Alzheimer’s Association volunteers serve education and outreach programs, lead support groups, and provide office and event assistance.

• Support Groups
Support groups offer a way for people who are caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s to share information and support each other.

• Local Resources
Find support groups, education programs, healthcare services and more in one easy location.
