Alzheimer's Caregiver Resources

The Sealy Center on Aging focuses on improving the health and well-being of the elderly through interdisciplinary research, education, and community service by integrating the resources and activities relevant to aging at UTMB. The Center also implements our research findings in hospitals and clinics, bringing excellence and visibility to our health care system, and improving the health of our seniors.

Below is a list of resources to assist caregivers of people affected with Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss and dementia.
