New Website for Older Latino Adults with Cognitive Concerns and Caregivers

Below is a message from Yadira Montoya, MSPH, Senior Community Engagement Coordinator at the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center

Here is information about a new bilingual resource that may be helpful for the Latino older adults and caregivers. Health professional who works with this population may also find the website useful as it lists events and blog posts related to Alzheimer’s disease, caregiving issues, and a comprehensive directory with a special focus on the Latino community in the Chicagoland area.
