Help give critical resources to families caring for their loved ones with Alzheimer's disease by funding this toll-free hotline.
Over 5 million Americans suffer with Alzheimer's disease. It is estimated that there are more than 15 million caregivers providing care to those with Alzheimer's and related dementias. The emotional toll on both those with the disease and their caregivers is overwhelming. They need assistance. They need resources. They need care. They call the Alzheimer's Foundation of America's toll-free hotline.
GreaterGood.org partners with The Alzheimer's Foundation of America's to provide a toll-free hotline to deliver compassion, knowledge, and care through licensed social workers, and provides information, counseling, and referrals to community resources across the nation. Licensed social workers will respond to your questions and direct you to appropriate local resources to meet your needs. No question is too small; no concern too insignificant.
The hotline operates Monday through Friday, 9 am to 9 pm (EST) and 9 am to 1 pm on Saturdays. During these hours, social workers are available by phone, as well as via Skype and live chat. Counseling is available in English and Spanish. Thousands of callers reach out and receive help each month. Help enhance the work of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America by donating to the cause. With additional funding, we can serve and provide care to more people that are desperately in need of help.
You can help. Just $10 helps fund the Alzheimer's Foundation of America's toll-free hotline.
