HFC is a national non-profit on a mission to care for families impacted by Alzheimer's disease, activate the next generation of Alzheimer's advocates, and be a leader in brain health research and education.
Let’s face it—bringing up Alzheimer’s doesn’t usually make you the life of the party. Most people don’t want to think about dementia until they have to.
But here’s the deal: if we can get people talking about Alz early on, and change their behavior, we can actually prevent up to 40% of cases! And when we say change, we’re not talking Ironman training or subsisting on raw wheatgrass. We’re talking healthy lifestyle adjustments like better sleep, breathing exercises and delicious new recipes. And we’re right here to help. Already caring for someone with dementia? We’re here for you too. That’s why we’ve packed this site with support, because while there isn’t a cure (yet!), there is care.
HFC doesn’t technically stand for Help for Caregivers, but maybe it should. Family caregivers of people with dementia endure huge emotional, financial, and physical difficulties. So many of them put their careers, personal lives, finances - everything - on hold to take care of loved ones. HFC’s goal is to transform the caregiving experience for young people and families impacted by Alzheimer’s disease, increasing their well-being and helping them thrive.
HFC is accelerating progress in Alzheimer’s care, prevention, and support all while bringing laughs and light to the Alzheimer’s space. Through its signature celebrity events, HFC also raises much-needed awareness about this disease.
"Our goal is to help people today with in-home care and support, while investing in brain health education and prevention research for tomorrow."
