News Release
Alzheimer's Network "Make a Memory" Grant Now Available - 10/05/22

Families and caregivers can make a lasting memory with a loved one with Alzheimer’s with the “Make a Memory” grant. 

Alzheimer’s Network (AlzNet) will award two grants of up to $500 each to two individuals. The grants are open to Willamette Valley residents who are diagnosed with a dementia-related illness. Families/caregivers can apply for the grant to help cover the costs of a special experience. This could be a trip to the beach or a visit to a place meaningful to them.  

Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills. Alzheimer’s and other dementias are heartbreaking to families and friends who long to connect with their loved ones.

Since 2003, The Alzheimer’s Network of Oregon (AlzNet) has assisted families and loved ones of those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia. The group hosts “Memory Café” on the 3rd Friday of every month in various locations. Each Memory Café has a different theme; everyone comes together to have fun with each other and their caregivers.

Applications can be filled out online at AlzNet.org or downloaded, printed, and mailed to PO Box 13725, Salem, OR 97309. Mailed applications must be postmarked by Oct. 20, 2022. 

For more information contact 971-720-1650 or alznetnetwork@gmail.com.
