Alzheimer's is a disease that has affected over 5 million Americans and causes them to behave erratically, becoming disoriented and forgetful. The Alzheimer's Association provides vital programs to help caregivers of Alzheimer's patients, including: family caregiver training, support group assistance, Safe Return program, and professional in-service programs.
