This class is intended for anyone wanting to learn about Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. Disease information, diagnosis and treatment, risk and prevention and coping are some of the topics shared. It is a great class to take prior to attending a caregiver support group and provides a good base of disease knowledge.

We need your help to give ALZ the boot! Alzheimer's Texas Walks are the only Alzheimer's walk fundraisers where 100% of the funds you raise stays in Texas. Join us to raise awareness about Alzheimer's and related disorders, support families currently facing the disease, honor those we have lost.
Form a team, and track your steps donating a $1 a mile, with proceeds going to Alzheimer's Texas to help support our caregiver educational programs.
Come walk with us virtually and post your steps, your miles, your story on our social media pages as we rally together to show support to those with Alzheimer's, their family members, and the caregivers in their lives!
