Concerned About Memory Loss: Montana Resources
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 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.
