Alzheimer's Disease

OMore than 25,000 Rhode Island residents are living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. Alzheimer’s robs the individual of memory, basic functions, and ultimately life. Alzheimer’s disease also takes a toll on family caregivers as they deal with the consequences of dementia, in terms of lost or less productive work time, damage to their physical and emotional health, a threat to their financial security, and constant stress. The Long Term Care Coordinating Council has developed a State Plan for Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. The plan is available at www.ltgov.ri.gov.

The Alzheimer’s Association, Rhode Island Chapter, 245 Waterman Avenue, Providence, RI 02906, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to coordinate resources for caregivers, educate health professionals and the general public, and advocate for improved public policy.
