Every 65 seconds, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s dementia, and it’s often left to loved ones to become part- or full-time caregivers. Most of these caregivers provide unpaid care, and also juggle other jobs and responsibilities. MemoryCare.com was founded to provide support for caregivers who feel overwhelmed and isolated, as well as those in the early stages of memory and cognitive impairment.
MemoryCare.com’s mission is to support older adults living with memory impairment and their families by using the latest, data-driven research and collaborating with memory care experts to provide resources that are accessible to all who are in need. Whether you are in the early stages of memory or cognitive impairment or care for a loved one in the later stages, MemoryCare.com has tools that can help.17

In response to this urgent need, we have created a series of comprehensive resources designed to help and support seniors suddenly experiencing financial hardship and housing instability. You can learn more about our resources here, which include:
