The Alzheimer’s Association leads the way to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.

The Alzheimer’s Association was founded in 1980 by a group of family caregivers and individuals who recognized the need for an organization that would unite caregivers, provide support to those facing Alzheimer’s and advance research into the disease.

Today, the Association reaches millions of people affected by Alzheimer’s and all other dementia. We are the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

Together, we can end Alzheimer’s.


Alzheimer’s Association

“I support the Alzheimer’s Association in the hopes that one day, we will have that first survivor of this devastating disease, someone to hold the white flower. It is so important, especially during these times, to support the Association. They support caregivers and families affected by the disease and help fund research that will lead to prevention and, hopefully, a cure. Alzheimer’s has zero survivors. That is unacceptable, and something has to be done.”
Michael Borowski,
“My husband was diagnosed with this awful disease seven years ago. Watching a brilliant, active and loving man slowly decline as his brain gradually shrinks is devastating. I support the Alzheimer’s Association because it supported me as I held papers that relayed a life-changing diagnosis, but no directions or guidance about what to do next. The association assured me I was not alone.” 
Wanda Hunt,
“Alzheimer’s is taking away the vibrancy of people we love. Becoming educated and informed about the disease will help us all fight it together. That’s why I support the Alzheimer’s Association. I am ready for a cure and I am willing to fight for it as long as I must, for my father and for yours.” 
Yvette Nicole Brown,
“The classes the Alzheimer’s Association offers create awareness and a discussion about Alzheimer’s and other dementia. I love teaching. I’m grateful that the
classes can be virtual and we’re able to connect with caregivers anywhere.”
Valerie Hein Hamstra,

“We could not perform the meaningful work that we do without the strong
partnership and support of the Alzheimer’s Association. “We are able to connect families to services such as respite, support groups, education and training opportunities.”
