Our mission of supporting a cure for Alzheimer’s and helping families affected takes shapes in many ways. One of these is our online resource center where we list a number of resources that families and caregivers may want to consider. Everyone’s journey is unique, but the one constant is the need for support. Along the years, we have all learned a few things and been given recommendations from others. We hope you find something helpful within these pages.
Most of these publications can be found on Amazon.com. If purchasing through Amazon, consider using Amazon smile and chose The David K. Johnson Foundation as your charity. A portion of your purchase will support our Foundation.
