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.
A world without Alzheimer's disease.
The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research.
We provide information, education and support:
If you need to talk, our toll-free 24/7 Helpline provides reliable information, referrals and support in multiple languages. Call us anytime at 1.800.272.3900.
From coast to coast, our local chapters are in your community, providing core services to families and professionals, including information and referral, support groups, care consultation, education and safety services.
Our message boards connect people from all across the country who share their experiences and find support and friendship with others living with Alzheimer's.
Alzheimer's Association CareSource™ is our online suite of resources that will help coordinate assistance from family and friends, locate senior housing, receive customized care recommendations and enhance caregiving skills.
We educate consumers about brain health and the steps they can take to potentially reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.
Our advocates educate Congress on critical Alzheimer policy issues and work to increase federal funding for research and care programs.
We are leading the way in making sure that dementia care is safe, respectful and meaningful for every individual through our Campaign for Quality Care.
As part of our Early-Stage Initiative, we've enlisted an advocacy group of individuals with early-stage dementia who are guiding our efforts in raising awareness of the disease and changing perceptions. A national dialogue on Alzheimer's began in 2007 through a series of Town Hall Meetings hosted by the Association.
