Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) was founded in 2002 by a caregiver whose mother lived with Alzheimer’s disease (1980-1992). At that time, there was little information available and nowhere to turn for support. His goal was to make sure that no other family living with Alzheimer’s disease would have to go through the journey alone. AFA provides support, services and education to individuals, families and caregivers affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias nationwide, and fund research for better treatment and a cure. AFA operates a National Toll-Free Helpline (866-232-84848), staffed entirely by licenses social workers. AFA provides training and continuing education to professional caregivers and dementia-care settings. AFA’s National Memory Screening Program provides free and confidential memory screenings at sites across the county. Test your memory : https://afamemorytest.com/
