The New York City Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association is a founding member of the Alzheimer's Association which is the largest national voluntary health organization dedicated to advancing research for the causes, treatments, and prevention of Alzheimer's disease. As baby boomers enter the age of greater risk, Alzeimer's disease is becoming the leading public health crisis of the 21st century. The mission of the Alzheimer's Association, New York City Chapter is to create and promote comprehensive and humane care for persons with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders, to provide support for their families and professional caregivers, and to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research. The Chapter meets this mission in the community through increasing public awareness, providing education, creating and encouraging replication of model programs, collaborating with research centers, and undertaking advocacy. The New York Chapter provides information, assistance and support to patients, caregivers and professionals, throughout the five boroughs of New York City. Our chapter sponsors many programs including our 24-hour Helpline, Support Groups for Caregivers and Early Stage People, training and education for professionals, our MedicAlert + Safe Return Program that helps locate patients who get lost, and many more. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's.
