Dementia Resource Guide
Dementia Friendly Alabama, along with Central Alabama Aging Consortium and Alabama Department of Senior Services, has created a resource guide that provides the reader with general information about dementia, treatment options, and local resources they can utilize. The goal of this guide is to point you in the right direction about a specific topic related to dementia. Many common questions you may want to ask are provided within this guide. Both a print and digital version are available.
Elder Abuse Prevention Toolkit
Access our FREE Elder Abuse Prevention toolkit. The purpose of this toolkit is to help individuals recognize and respond to the mistreatment of older people in whatever settings it occurs. Elder Abuse is not only physical, but also emotional, financial exploitation, sexual or neglect. Elder abuse can occur anywhere and affects elders of all socio-economic groups, cultures, and races.
Dementia Resource Help Cards
Dementia Friendly Alabama, along with Alabama Dept of Senior Services and Central Alabama Aging Consortium, has created help cards for caregivers and individuals with dementia to make it easier to get help or assistance when they’re out in the community. The card is small, the same size as a business card, and allows caregivers and seniors with dementia to discreetly tell someone that you may require additional help and patience.
