Child with Elderly

Alzheimer’s disease is rapidly growing in the United States.  According to the 2022 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 MSU Extension program provides materials for teachers, parents and librarians to educate about Alzheimer's disease by the following materials:
