Alzheimer’s & Dementia Resources and Support

AME Church Working With the Alzheimer’s Association to Provide Information and Support to Church Members

 

African Americans are about twice as likely as whites to have Alzheimer’s or other dementias. Recognizing this increased risk, the African Methodist Episcopal Church and the Alzheimer’s Association have started a three-year nationwide partnership that will focus on educating church members about this devastating disease and the support and resources available. Through engagement with this community, the AME Church and the Alzheimer’s Association hope to boost awareness, advocacy and involvement in research.
