General

  • Mission:
  • The mission of the Alzheimer's Association is 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. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's.

  • Overview:
  • The Alzheimer’s Association provides supportive programs and services to help people with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers deal with the disease and its impact on their lives. Each chapter in our nationwide network offers the five core services described below. In addition, some chapters offer special programs such as assistance to individuals with Alzheimer’s who live alone, people living with early-onset Alzheimer's, rural and/or multicultural outreach, care coordination services, and training programs for families and professionals.
    Core programs and services
    Information and referral — A chapter helpline provides emotional support to the caller as well as information about Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, chapter services and referrals to community resources. Chapters maintain updated information on home care, adult day care, care coordination, assisted living, skilled nursing facilities, eldercare lawyers, financial planners and transportation. Staff and trained volunteers can help assess whether a specific care provider meets the individual needs of a person with Alzheimer’s.

    Other information services include:

    24/7 Helpline for local referrals
    Chapter Web site resources and links
    Access to resources at the Association’s Green-Field Library
    Portfolio of publications about Alzheimer’s disease, caregiving, financial and legal matters
    Care consultation — Dedicated professional staff help people navigate through the difficult decisions and uncertainties people with Alzheimer’s and their families face at every stage of the disease. Services can be provided by telephone, e-mail or in-person These include:

    Assessment of needs
    Assistance with planning and problem solving
    Providing supportive listening
    Support groups — Peer- or professionally led groups for caregivers and others dealing with Alzheimer’s disease are facilitated by trained individuals. Many locations offer specialized groups for children, individuals with early-onset and early-stage Alzheimer’s, adult caregivers and others with specific needs.

    Safety services — Chapters promote and encourage people with Alzheimer’s to enroll in MedicAlert® + Alzheimer's Association Safe Return®. When a person with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia wanders or has a medical emergency, the chapter provides support to the family and assists law enforcement.

    Education — Chapters maintain a variety of educational materials (brochures, videos, audiotapes, and books) on topics related to Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. Topics include basic information about the disease, getting a diagnosis, communication techniques, home safety tips, choosing a residential care setting, caregiving experiences and activity programming. Educational programs address the specific interests of the general public, individuals with the disease and their families, and health care and social services professionals. Chapters also provide customized speaking engagements on request. Some educational programs offer continuing education (CE) or continuing medical education (CME) credits.

  • History:
  • The Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association is a nonprofit organization that focuses on research, care and support for individuals and families afflicted with Alzheimer's disease and other mental health conditions. The Association operates a 24-hour phone line and website, as well as chapters and events in more than 600 communities throughout the United States.
    Considerations
    The Alzheimer's Association was established on April 10, 1980. One of its first priorities was to push for the National Institutes of Health to make further investments into research for the disease. This came in the form of $13 million in the first year.
