Act Now Foundation is an organization that is interested in providing support, education, and resources for caregivers. The organization was founded in 2012 by Kristine Allen and Cary Lopez. It was founded as a not-for profit with the devotion to raise awareness about Alzheimer's disease prevention and early detection.

The foundation has worked to create two laws regarding Alzheimer's disease in the State of New Jersey. The laws mandate that the disease is listed as a cause of death on death certificates. They look to provide support, education, memory screening, and care planning for their customers.

COVID-19

With the outbreak of the novel COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Act Now Foundation has been monitoring the virus and how it is effecting caregivers and people living with and around Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. They recommend that those with the disease have several weeks of medication prepared. The foundation has prepared a list of sources for news to follow for caregivers.
