About the Alzheimer’s Association

In 1980, a group of family caregivers and individuals founded the Alzheimer’s Association. They recognized the importance of creating an organization that could unite caregivers, provide support to those facing Alzheimer’s and advance research for the disease. Today, the Alzheimer’s Association positively impacts millions of people affected by Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. They are the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research. For more information, visit www.alz.org.
