Alzheimer's Association Helpline Contact Information
Alzheimer's Association helpline: 1-800-272-3900
Submitted by Marilyn Dyson
I would tell anyone to call the Alzheimer's Association helpline: 1-800-272-3900. Please remember it's 24/7. For local resources hours are 9-5 weekdays, they can call and find out about PCA, day care locations, senior centers and long term care. Plus they can get tips on how to manage specific situations. They can get emotional support anytime. also, they can find out about other support groups that are especially for Alzheimer's and deliberately structured to help with their situations. There are three - four nearby. People are encouraged to support group hop. It's like going to AA; you can never go enough. The support groups are also on the website. However, it's still mandatory to call the helpline to get the latest information on meeting changes and updates. If the person questions the helpline information, she/he can always call back during another shift (different day morning or afternoon) and talk to someone else.

The Recovery Village
I'm a team member at The Recovery Village, an organization with locations across the country, dedicated to helping those struggling with substance abuse into recovery. We understand the unique responsibilities of caregivers and how their selfless role can be both rewarding and stressful, causing some to turn to various forms of substance abuse to cope; we believe education can help prevent this.
Our new resource outlines the mental effects of caregiving, the signs and consequences of substance abuse, and how to get help if they are using substances to cope.
Would you be able to help by adding our resource about caregivers and substance abuse to your list of resources on your site?
With your help, we can provide quality resources to caregivers and their loved ones that can enrich and save lives while letting them know they are not alone.
