Alzheimer Family Program

We are here to help

The Alzheimer Family Program (AFP) is part of the UAB Center for Aging. AFP is supported by this center, by donations, and by the Jefferson County Office of Senior Citizens Services. Since 1980, AFP has been reaching out to those caring for loved ones who have Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia and memory loss. Some of the specific ways we offer help to caregivers are discussed below. If you are involved in caring for someone who has dementia, we consider you a caregiver. Even if you are not caring for someone but you care about someone with dementia, AFP and this website can be helpful to you. For more information click on the topics listed.
