“To unite with those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders to ensure quality of life until a cure is found.”
Alzheimer’s Resource of Alaska’s story began with two sisters caring for their mother with dementia; upon realizing that little information and few services were available for individuals in similar circumstances, they began a grassroots outreach effort to find others who needed support. By 1982 Becky and Beverly formed the first Caregiver Support Group.
In 1984 the group incorporated. From its inception, the organization served the entire state. The founders traveled throughout Alaska providing education and support to individuals and families. Over the years new programs, services and offices were added to fill the need in Alaska. We now have offices in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau and Palmer and provide information, referrals, education, consultations, trainings, support groups, in-home services and care coordination to Alaska’s elders. We employ workers in cities and villages throughout the state from Akiachak to Unalakleet.
You can help make a difference
Every seven seconds someone develops Alzheimer's disease; many people don't know where to turn for help. Because Alaska has the fastest aging population in the country, the demand for Alzheimer's, dementia and general senior care is growing dramatically. Your support can make a big difference in the life of an Alaskan senior.
