5 Ways to Get Involved
No matter who you are, or what your relation is to the person with Alzheimer's Disease, we are all in this together. Raising awareness around topics such as diagnosing Alzheimer's, supporting people with Alzheimer's, caregiver burnout, and participating clinical research, can help bring funding and understanding from the broader community. Share your experiences online, advocate for legislation, and more!
There are exciting events in the Alzheimer's community happening all the time. You can volunteer to help to make these events a success. Here are a few upcoming events !
Clinical trials are one of the cornerstones of medical innovation. Almost all of the treatments we rely on today were tested in trials, and there are tens of thousands of clinical trials testing the treatments of tomorrow, going on right now. However, about 50% of trials fail because they don't enroll enough patients. You can be a part of the next scientific breakthrough by participating. Learn if it's right for you by learning more about research on Caretalk!
Caretalk is a community of patients, caregivers, families, scientists, and clinicians who come together to share stories, knowledge, and support each other in their Alzheimer's Disease journey. When you join Caretalk, you not only get to learn, but you get the chance to participate in your health conversation. Learn more about Caretalk and sign up (it's free)!
