Scott Robarge, a professional recruiter for fast-paced technology companies throughout the Bay Area, supports the Alzheimer’s Association. As a contributor, Scott Robarge helps the organization in its goals of augmenting support and care of patients living with the disease.

A top voluntary organization, the Alzheimer’s Association seeks to end the illness by furthering research, offering improved care, and encouraging healthy lifestyles. One way that the association does this is through eliminating the loneliness that Alzheimer’s patients and caregivers commonly experience. The organization develops communities through chapters based nationwide, giving local areas the support that they need.

The organization also hosts ALZConnected®, a free online community that is designed to help people who have Alzheimer’s or dementia. This includes family members, caregivers, friends, people who have lost loved ones, and Alzheimer’s patients.

Staff from the Alzheimer’s Association regularly hold educational sessions and support groups across the US. There is even a Community Resource Finder that offers assistance for housing, service, programs, care, and legal matters.
