Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
The Alzheimer's & Dementia Alliance is committed to helping people with dementia and their caregivers cope through information, education, support and advocacy.
Caring for someone who has Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia is perhaps one of the biggest commitments a person can face. It's filled with emotional stress and hard work, but it can also be meaningful and rewarding. Sometimes families can feel isolated and may not know where to turn for help. The purpose of the Alzheimer's & Dementia Alliance is to help families cope with all aspects of the disease through information, education, support, and advocacy.
Although there is no cure for Alzheimer's, there are strategies, therapies, and treatments that can help manage the disease. The Alzheimer's & Dementia Alliance can be a guide and a support to persons with Alzheimer's disease and related dementia and their families as they learn about options and begin to plan for the future.
We serve nine counties: Dane, Columbia, Grant, Green, Iowa, Lafayette, Richland, Rock and Sauk.
