Hello,
Did you know there are many proven benefits to volunteering. It connects you to others, is good for your mind and body, can advance your career and brings fun and fulfillment to your life. Research has shown staying cognitively and socially active along with proper diet and exercise can reduce your chances of developing Alzheimer's or other dementia's.
The Greater KY/Southern IN Chapter is seeking passionate volunteers throughout KY & Southern IN to teach education classes, lead support groups, host event tables and be faith based community representatives. More than 70,000 Kentuckians and 110,000 Hoosiers are living with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia's. There are over 600,000 caregivers in KY and IN needing support and education. It is imperative that we bring more awareness to our communities and reach more families that can use our free services and education. But we can't do it alone. We need your help.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely, Helene French

Mission Statement

Our Vision: A world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia.™ Our Mission: The Alzheimer's Association leads the way to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia -- by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.

Description

The Alzheimer's Association leads the way to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia - by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.
The Alzheimer’s Association was founded in 1980 by a group of family caregivers and individuals who recognized the need for an organization that would unite caregivers, provide support to those facing Alzheimer’s and advance research into the disease.
Jerome H. Stone, a true visionary in the Alzheimer’s movement, was our founding president. When his wife, Evelyn, was diagnosed with the disease in 1970, information about Alzheimer’s - even among the medical community - was limited. With drive and determination, Mr. Stone took a disease that was cloaked in silence and helped to create a global conversation.
