Concerned About Memory Loss: Montana Resources
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:
- Ensuring Montanans diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease and related dementia and their family caregivers have Montana specific materials about legal and financial alternatives through an MSU Extension Alzheimer's Packet.
- To download packets materials and order free packet click here.
- Anyone who knows someone with Alzheimer’s and a young child who would benefit from gaining an understanding about this disease and the unusual behaviors that accompany it , maybe interested in the Alzheimer's storybooks including:
- A worksheet in which Montanans can record their thoughts about the activities they enjoy and hope to continue enjoying as long as is feasible as they face memory loss from Alzheimer’s or other form of dementia. To download the worksheet, click here.
Funding for the purchase of the storybooks for the pilot program were made possible
by a grant from the Montana Geriatric Education Center at the University of Montana
and Montana Community Foundation.
