Alzheimer's Association
The Alzheimer's Association is a national U.S. non-profit organization providing support to families and caregivers.

The site also provides an overview of current research.
The Alzheimer Page is the companion web site to the ALZHEIMER email discussion group, created and sponsored by the Washington University Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC) in St. Louis, Missouri. The email list is an open discussion forum intended for patients, family members, caregivers and researchers to share questions and information about Alzheimer's. The web site provides information on joining the list, as well as excerpts from the list on frequently discussed topics and a searchable archive. Also available is a fact sheet on the stages of Alzheimer's.
This site, created by NetHealth, Inc., and supported by Bayer, provides a community bulletin board, an archive of Alzheimer's related news stories, and articles and fact sheets written for families and caregivers. The creators describe the site as "a gateway to information about Alzheimer's disease on the Internet."

The site also includes a searchable bibliographic database of more than 5,000 abstracts of books and journal articles on Alzheimer's and a searchable database of clinical drug trials.
Alzheimer's Research Forum
The Alzheimer's Research Forum is a non-profit organization that promotes collaboration among Alzheimer's disease researchers.
