The mission of the Central and Western Virginia Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association is to eliminate the incurability of Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research, and to enhance the care and support for individuals, their families, and caregivers affected by Alzheimer's disease. Our vision is to create a world where Alzheimer's disease becomes curable and preventable while we continue to optimize the quality of life for those affected with the disease, as well as their loved ones and families.
According to the 2014 Alzheimer's Facts and Figures report, there are more than 5 million Americans with Alzheimer's disease. Every 67 seconds, someone in America develops the disease. Alzheimer's is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and the only cause of death among the top 10 in the United States that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed. In Virginia there are 130,000 people living with Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 190,000 by 2025. Over 42,000 people suffer from Alzheimer's disease and dementia in the Central and Western Virginia Chapter area.
