Receive Your Guide

Our team at Banner Alzheimer’s Institute and Banner Sun Health Research Institute knows that no two individuals or families experience Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia the same way. However, there are basic principles of living with Alzheimer’s or a dementia-related disease that our team has collected into Navigating through Memory Loss: A guide for patients and families. This exceptional resource addresses the current and ongoing medical, emotional, social and financial needs that those affected by Alzheimer’s or dementia face, including:

  • Symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia
  • Strategies for living well
  • Ideas to creatively address behavioral challenges
  • Important resources for all aspects of caregiving
  • Tools for day-to-day and long-term planning

Patients receiving care at any Banner’s specialty memory centers of excellence, as well as their families, will receive the guide at no charge.
