Alzheimer’s Disease attacks the brain and is the most common form of dementia. To deal with this difficult disease, the Gerontology Institute includes services of the Alzheimer’s Association in its model of care. The Alzheimer’s Association provides important support for patients and families. They are also an important source of research information for anyone interested in learning more about this disease.
The Web site for the Oregon chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association provides comprehensive information about Alzheimer’s Disease.
The Gerontology Institute is a proud sponsor of the annual Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk fund-raising event.
