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.

Description

The Alzheimer’s Association is the world’s leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research. We work on a global, national and local level to enhance care and support for all those affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias. As the largest non-profit funder of Alzheimer's research, the Association is committed to accelerating progress of new treatments, preventions and ultimately, a cure. Through our partnerships and funded projects, we have been part of every major research advancement over the past 30 years. The Association is also the leading voice for Alzheimer's disease advocacy, fighting for critical Alzheimer's research, prevention and care initiatives at the state and federal level. We diligently work to make Alzheimer’s a national priority. Read more about us here.

Since its founding in Menlo Park, Calif. in 1981 by a group of dedicated volunteers, the Alzheimer’s Association, Northern California and Northern Nevada Chapter has grown to include nine offices across two states. We serve hundreds of families with our 24/7 helpline, offer one-on-one care consultations, maintain more than 150 support groups, mobilize 1,000 volunteers in the cause, raised more than $1.7 million for our national research program in fiscal year 13 and more. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer’s disease.
