You, an advocate
Whether you have Alzheimer’s disease or care about someone who does, you might find yourself wondering, “What can I do? What part can I play in raising awareness or helping the cause of research or advocacy for Alzheimer’s disease?"
Volunteers are the backbone of any disease or patient advocacy program, and the organizations that provide resources welcome help in a variety of ways. Participating in one or more activities can truly make a difference, and help the person with Alzheimer’s disease and his or her loved ones feel less powerless and more powerful.
