Mission Statement

The mission of the Alzheimer's Association is 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. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's.

Description

The Alzheimer's Associatoin is the largest national non profit for research and services for Alzheimer's Disease. We provide care consults, resources, education and information to communities, families with loved ones suffering from Alzheimer's Disease and health care facilities. We educate these individuals so that they can better prepare, provide care for, and know what to expect when dealing with an individual and their progression with Alzheimer's Disease. We also provide support group training for support group leaders so that care givers have a place to go for advice, support, and fellowship with other care givers.

The Alzheimer's Association also raises money to fund research targeting eliminating Alzheimer's Disease. We hold several events each year, raising money that goes toward programs and research to benefit the Alzheimer's Association's mission. We are a non profit, and it is our goal to help the lives of people giving care and living with Alzheimer's Disease.
