Communicating the facts of Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia is essential to our outreach mission. Our educational materials serve as the perfect complement to our hands-on seminars, memory screenings and outreach events. Easy-to-read, appealing flyers and brochures will attract more readers and facilitate better information retention. Currently the materials are text heavy and not visual which reduces their usability.
We already have 11 informative 8.5x11 educational flyers, so it will be easy for you to get started. Your contribution is to better organize and visually present this educational content by rewording text, including infographics and other design elements.
The Act Now Foundation was started by two businesswomen who used to develop fragrances for major designers! They sold their business and started Act Now Foundation after Alzheimer's disease struck both of their families and they could not find critical community services.
Act Now Foundation (ANF) is dedicated to raising awareness and educating urban communities about Alzheimer's disease, prevention, and early detection in order to improve the quality of life for Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers.
In November of 2015, ANF opened the first Alzheimer's Resource Center in Northern New Jersey that offers a less formal and more supportive environment for families living with AD. With a stronghold in the Hispanic and urban communities all programs are offered in English and Spanish. The core programs that ANF offers free of charge include: • Memory Screening • Support & Memory Clubs • Education • Long Term Care Planning • Advocacy and Outreach
