|Jose and Maria Guzman|
It’s my desire to help families care for their loved ones in their own home as long as possible. A secondary goal is to help improve Alzheimer’s facilities, making them a place where families feel their loved ones will be cared for with compassion.
Join Jose Guzman and the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's™ and unite in a movement to reclaim the future for millions. Walk to End Alzheimer's is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support and research. Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease — the nation's sixth-leading cause of death.
Walk, jog or sprint 2.2 miles starting at the UTA-Maverick Activities Center–Outdoor Basketball/Volleyball Court (on the south side of the MAC.

No two people experience Alzheimer’s disease in the same way. As a result, there's no one approach to caregiving. Your responsibilities can range from making financial decisions, managing changes in behavior, to helping a loved one get dressed in the morning.
Handling these duties is hard work. But by learning caregiving skills, you can make sure that your loved one feels supported and is living a full life. You can also ensure that you are taking steps to preserve your own well-being.
The Alzheimer's Association Caregiver Notebook contains information and resources to help manage the challenges of caring for an individual with Alzheimer's. Order your copy today.
