Before you create your panel, please fill out and submit the Panel Maker Application . (You can also obtain the application form by calling AFA toll-free at 866-AFA-8484). Once you submit your application, we will send you a confirmation letter. Then, you will be on your way toward creating your own unique panel for the AFA Quilt to Remember .
Each panel will tell a special story – a moving personal tribute – about a loved one who had or has Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia; a caregiver; other family members affected by the disease; or a healthcare professional.
We welcome panel contributions from individuals, and companies and organizations on an ongoing basis. The creators can be individuals or groups of individuals, such as a family (everyone from toddlers to older adults), a caregiver support group, an adult day program or the staff of an assisted living facility.
Instructions and Tips:
We would also like to hear your personal story. We would welcome a letter or special thoughts about the person you are honoring with your panel.
How to Submit Panels:
Please send your completed panel, along with your personal story and a copy of your panel maker application, to:
AFA Quilt to Remember
Alzheimer's Foundation of America
322 Eighth Avenue, 7th floor
New York, NY 10001
There is no cost to contribute a panel. However, if you would like to make a donation to help offset the cost of touring the quilt or for AFA programs and services in general you can send it with your panel, or make a contribution online, by mail or by phone. We appreciate your generosity.
Thanks so much for your interest in the AFA Quilt to Remember …and for caring!
