Caregivers are the unsung heroes of Alzheimer's disease.
Dear Aloyzio,

Each November, in recognition of National Family Caregivers Month, we honor the people who provide compassionate support to those living with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.

Caring for someone with Alzheimer's can be overwhelming, so we want to take this opportunity to remind caregivers to take care of themselves. Last year alone, more than 15 million caregivers provided an estimated 17.9 billion hours of unpaid care to family and friends living with Alzheimer's — a contribution to the nation valued at $217.7 billion. If you know a caregiver in need of support, please forward this email or encourage them to visit

We know that people with Alzheimer's and dementia rely on caregivers to live their best life possibleWhen you give to the Alzheimer's Association, you're helping to fund critical research, fuel important advocacy efforts and support caregivers with local and online resources such as:
  • 24/7 Helpline: A free resource for reliable information and support, day or night, at 800.272.3900.
  • ALZConnected®: An online community that enables caregivers to connect with one another.
  • Educational resources: Our educational workshops and online Caregiver Center offer strategies and proactive advice.
