The Alzheimer’s Association is a nonprofit organization in the United States that focuses on Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Established in 1980, it is one of the leading voluntary health organizations dedicated to Alzheimer’s care, support and research. The association provides support services for individuals affected by Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. They also fund and support scientific research efforts to better understand the causes and potential treatments for Alzheimer’s and related dementias.

Prairie Meadows is a homelike memory-care facility with 66 beds in four types of apartment-style housing – private deluxe, private, semiprivate (just shared bathroom) and companion rooms – and a nurse at the community around the clock. They use a “Spark resident-led” program to help get to know residents by learning their life stories and finding out their preferences, likes, dislikes and cherished memories. Prairie Meadows then incorporates that information into their everyday care. For more information, visit or call (402) 391-2790.
