FOR OLDER ADULTS & CAREGIVERS:

Alzheimer’s Organizations

 

Center for Disease Control (CDC)

  • The CDC Foundation has developed a set of free COVID-19 resources to inform older adults and others about steps they can take to protect health. The free resources are available for download, distribution and use on communications channels, and organizations can customize as needed. Many resources are in both English and Spanish. (The foundation is a nonprofit authorized by Congress to support CDC's mission.)
  • CDC's COVID-19 resource center focused on older adults continues to expand information, communications, and guidance for older adults and providers who serve them.  Some of the new resources include: face coverings, care plans, and persons with disability.
