The Stanford/VA Alzheimer's Research Center's long-standing partnerships with many local physicians, professionals, and community organizations allow us to offer a network of education and support to patients and families. These collaborations include the Alzheimer’s Association of Northern California, Family Caregiver Alliance, Kaiser Permanente, the Parkinson’s Institute, Rosener House Adult Day Services, local senior centers, and more. We have been instrumental in educating thousands of California patients, caregivers, and family members on the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), and related disorders. For more than 20 years now, the Center has offered support groups to educate families on memory disorders, as well as to address psychosocial concerns.
