What We Do

We offer care and support at no charge to families and individuals living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Programs include a 24-hour Helpline, care consultation, dementia-specific educational workshops, caregiver support groups, Medic Alert®+ Safe Return®, caregiver respite reimbursement, and physician outreach.

Why We’re Great

The Alzheimer’s Association is the largest private, nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s disease research. We also work with our statewide network of volunteers to advocate for the needs and rights of those affected by Alzheimer’s disease. Our vision is a “world without Alzheimer’s” – a goal that our dedicated staff works toward everyday.

Why We Deserve Your Support

We need community financial support in order to continue providing services at no charge to the 36,500 families living with Alzheimer’s in our 58-county chapter territory. We are the premier source of information, referral and support for persons with memory loss disorders, their families and caregivers.
