If you are visiting this site, you already know that addressing the impact of Alzheimer’s disease demands a coordinated, multidisciplinary effort.
Our success—beginning with the development of the critical resources you’ll find here—depends on the contributions of many trusted partners.
Listed below are some of the key agencies and organizations we work with in this effort. They are an invaluable resource for the Alzheimer’s Research Association, and the patients and caregivers we serve.
A Place for Mom was founded more than 14 years ago to help families navigate the maze of senior housing options. Since then, A Place for Mom has grown to become the largest senior living referral service in the U.S. and Canada. Although our company name focuses on “mom,” we help dad too! As well as uncles, aunts, brothers, and sisters—everyone who is faced with finding the best senior living options for their loved ones.

Our solutions help families make informed decisions in one of the most important and highly considered aspects of their family life: finding and managing quality care for their loved ones. In providing families a comprehensive marketplace for care, we are also building the largest global destination for quality caregivers to find fulfilling employment and career opportunities. We strive to help our members—families and caregivers—pursue their passions and fulfill the basic human need to care for one another.

The Alzheimer’s Research Association is proud to partner with Indiana University for a Caregiver Study. The research team at Indiana University is conducting a pilot study to find out more about how to design online social support programs for caregivers. The team wants to find out how social media can be used to build social support. Believing that online programs are most successful when caregivers do not feel isolated, caregivers are encouraged to participate and find activities meaningful for obtaining informational and emotional support.
