The primary goals of the Midlands Chapter are:
  • Educate the community on the needs of caregivers/families who have individuals with Alzheimer's disease (AD) or a related disorder.
  • Create greater awareness of the disease in the area
  • Assist families/caregivers in obtaining information and services.

The Chapter is a not-for-profit organization of volunteers, laypersons and healthcare professionals all working together to accomplish these goals. Essential information is made available through advocacy, education programs, patient/family services, and research updates. Founded in 1981, the Chapter is a member of the National Alzheimer's Association located in Chicago, Illinois. The Chapter assists families/caregivers in Eastern Nebraska and Southwestern Iowa.

Advocacy
The Chapter works to bring about a greater awareness of the needs and problems faced by the caregivers of individuals with AD. Using a volunteer advocacy network, issues relating to caregiver's needs are brought to the attention of local and national legislators.

Support Groups
It's very beneficial for family members and caregivers involved with caring for an individual with Alzheimer's disease to attend Coping/Support Group meetings.  By attending meetings you will feel less alone and learn that others share in your feelings, frustrations and concerns.
