Alzheimer's Disease Research Centers

The Alzheimer's Disease Research Centers around the country can be a useful source of care and information for Alzheimer's caregivers and their families.

Alzheimer's Reading Room

I often receive emails asking me how to find someone that is experienced in the diagnosis of dementia, or for other Alzheimer's related problems. When this happens, the first thing I do is ask them their location.

There are about 30 Alzheimer's Disease Research Centers (ADRC) around the country. When most people think ADRC they think research. However, most ADRCs have doctors in practice and practicing neurologists.

These centers can be very helpful to families, and I suggest if you have a problem or question you contact them.
