Alzheimer’s Association, Fighting to End Alzheimer’s

The Alzheimer’s Association of Mississippi is an integral part of the fight against Alzheimer’s. As the largest non-profit funder of Alzheimer’s research, the Association is committed to accelerating progress of new treatments, prevention and ultimately a cure. The Association focuses on empowering and supporting individuals, families, care partners, and communities that are affected as well as to reduce to risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. There are a variety of services available to all affected. The Association provides care consultations, 24 hour helpline, caregiver support groups, educational programs, safety services, and free clinical studies that match individuals with caregivers and healthy volunteers.

Although they have been the leading voice in in Alzheimer’s research, prevention, and care, there is an ongoing need for volunteers to help with initiatives and education. According to Alzheimer’s Association’s volunteer coordinator Adina Walker, volunteers are an integral part of continuing the fight against Alzheimer’s. Individuals and groups can help out in many different ways including assisting with special events such as Walk to End Alzheimer’s or Longest Day, office help, advocacy and awareness programs, and speaking engagement.
