Partners

POTENTIAL PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS – here are just a few nationally-known groups.  Local possibilities are many and varied.

NATIONAL ALZHEIMER’S ORGANIZATIONhttps://www.alz.org/

(note – some local Alzheimer’s groups are chapters of the national organization; others are independent non-profits; some metro areas have both.  Be aware that the national organization places top priority on research for a cure, while most local independents place top priority on outreach & support services.)

Alzheimer’s Texas is the local partner of SABR’s programs in Central Texas – http://www.txalz.org
