Dementia Resources & Organizations
While we are proud to guide families through the legal issues they may be facing after a dementia or Alzheimer’s diagnosis, we know we cannot give you everything you need during this difficult time.
Instead, we would like to direct you to a couple of useful resources and organizations where you can find everything from basic information to support groups in your area:
- The Alzheimer's Association aims to unite caregivers, provide support to those facing Alzheimer’s, and advance research into the disease.
- Dementia Society of America® (DSA) provides an information hotline, a variety of online resources, and tools to locate support. The organization aims to enhance the quality of life for those living with dementia and their caregivers.
