To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
The Alzheimer's Association Minnesota-North Dakota has been providing services, information, and advocacy for over 30 years to people with dementia, their families and health care providers. This Chapter is one of seven founding chapters of the National Alzheimer's Association, headquartered in Chicago. It was started by family caregivers who came together around a common need of getting support and help for their loved ones with dementia. Since 1979, our donor-supported, nonprofit Alzheimer's Association has provided reliable information and care consultation; created supportive services for families; increased funding for dementia research; and influenced public policy changes.
The Alzheimer's Association Committee was wonderful to work with. The event was well organized, and the members were enthusiastic about it's volunteers and attendees. My coordinator, Rebecca Ayaz, demonstrated tremendous leadership.
