Mission Statement

The Alzheimer's Association, New Hampshire Office, is an alliance of family members, individuals with dementia and professionals dedicated to helping people with chronic dementing illnesses and their families through education, advocacy and support. Our purpose is to work toward a comprehensive, accessible and compassionate system of family support and therapeutic patient care, to focus public and institutional attention on dementia as a major public health issue and to promote research efforts to prevent, treat and cure dementing illness.

The Alzheimer's Association provides support to the 20,000 people with Alzheimer's disease and their families in New Hampshire.

Description

Every July, the Alzheimer's Association sponsors the Memory Ride to raise funds for research. The 12th Annual Memory Ride will take place on Saturday, July 26, 2008 in Devens, MA. There will bethree distance options: 25, 62 and 100 mile. We are looking for riders as well as volunteers to help with mailings, registration, and miscellaneous duties on the day of the event. This is an incredibly rewarding way to have fun and participate in finding a cure forAlzheimer's Disease. Go to www.memoryride.org for more information.

Every September we host four Memory Walk events throughout the state with walks in Keene, Concord, Manchester & Portsmouth. The Memory Walk is a great fundraising event that not only brings awareness to the disease but also raises critical funds for research and family services. Please check out www.memorywalknh.org for more information or contact us for volunteer opportunities.
