Create a Tribute for a Loved One with Alzheimer’s

An estimated 5.2 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer’s disease. This includes an estimated 5 million people age 65 and older and approximately 200,000 individuals younger than age 65.

When Alzheimer’s disease touches someone close to you, it’s natural to want to honor or remember the person in a special way. Now, you can create an online Tribute page to celebrate your loved one with Alzheimer’s, while showing your support for the fight against the disease. A Tribute is a special Web page that enables you to share the story of a loved one with family and friends.

How can you set up a tribute?

  1. Visit the Alzheimer’s Association website and click on “Create Your Tribute.”
  2. Write a personal story, share memories, add a picture, create photo albums and ask others to do the same. 
  3. E-mail family, friends and co-workers about your Tribute.
  4. You will have access to update your page, send e-mails and check the progress of your Tribute.   
  5. You can even find others pages using a search function on the site.

Note: You can also create a Tribute as a personal fundraising page too.

People create tribute pages to be used for birthdays, anniversaries, and even memorial services, to honor a friend or family member living with the disease or someone who has lost their battle.
