Alzheimer's Disease Education and Referral Center

Do you have a question about Alzheimer’s disease? Can’t find the information you need? The Alzheimer's Disease Education and Referral (ADEAR) Center can assist website visitors through our daily Live Chat instant messaging service! Staffed by experienced, knowledgeable Information Specialists, this instant messaging service is available during expanded hours – Monday through Friday, noon to 4 p.m. ET.

In addition to the Chat Service, the ADEAR Center website will help you find current, comprehensive Alzheimer's disease (AD) information and resources from the National Institute on Aging (NIA).

Most publications are free of charge and they will ship multiple copies so that you can share with your friends and family. The Alzheimer’s Disease Center at UT Southwestern supports the ADEAR education and referral center and we encourage you to use their resources, including the new online Chat Service.
