PreschoolMontana State University Extension is piloting Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness for Children Storybook Series for preschool teachers. 

This program provides materials for teachers to educate preschool children about Alzheimer's disease.

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.  

Montana State University Extension has developed this storybook series with the goal to increase awareness and knowledge about Alzheimer’s disease.  We want to provide supportive resources to teachers across Montana.

                                         


 

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.
