Alzheimer’s disease is rapidly growing in the United States.  According to the 2021 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures Report, one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia.  When a family member has Alzheimer’s, everyone in that family is affected, including children.  

This program provides materials for teachers, parents and librarians to educate about Alzheimer's disease by:

  • Ensuring Montanans diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease and related dementia and their family caregivers have Montana specific materials about legal and financial alternatives.  Click here for information about the packet.
  • Use storybooks to increase awareness and knowledge about Alzheimer's disease among preschool teachers, children, and their parents.  

  • Use marketing materials for librarians to market the storybooks to the public.

Funding for the purchase of the storybooks in this program have been made possible by a grant from the Montana Geriatric Education Center at the University of Montana.
