We Educate and Empower the Alzheimer's Community
Introduction
At its core the Alzheimer's Reading Room  is about helping members of the Alzheimer's Community understand, cope, and communicate with persons living with Alzheimer's and related dementia.

The goal of the Alzheimer's Reading Room is to Educate, sometimes Entertain, and Empower Alzheimer's caregivers, their families, and the entire Alzheimer's community. 

The ARR was launched in 2008 and more than 5,200,000 people worldwide have visited the website seeking information about Alzheimer's and dementia.

At the Alzheimer's Reading Room, we offer "real life" solutions to problems that Alzheimer's caregivers face each day. 



I started the Alzheimer’s Reading Room to keep track of the thousands of articles and many books I was reading about Alzheimer's disease.

Soon after I started the blog, I began to receive emails from Alzheimer's caregivers from all over the world. First an email here and there, and now thousands of emails.

I soon realized that Alzheimer's caregivers are often thrust into their role with little or no experience, training, or education about Alzheimer's disease. As a result, they are often overwhelmed and suffer from feelings of helplessness. Forty percent of Alzheimer's caregivers suffer from depression.

150 Million people have been touched by Alzheimer's disease, and 50 million are worried about Alzheimer's. Each day, 1,232 people are diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. 

We do not advertise or market our service, in spite of this The Alzheimer's Reading Room is growing fast. As it grows, so does the collective brain of the blog.  

At the Alzheimer's Reading Room we rely on our readers to spread the word via Google+ ,  Facebook,  sharing, and by word of mouth at conferences and in support groups.

We always needs help and if you would like to participate and help us with issues like SEO, spreading the word, and how to improve the look and feel of the website, please contact us.
