Know the Facts
Alzheimer's disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S.
It is the only cause of death in the top 10 in America without a way to prevent, cure or even slow its progression.
An estimated 5.2 million people are living with Alzheimer's disease today -- 5 million are age 65 and older and 200,000 are under the age of 65 with younger-onset Alzheimer's.
Alzheimer's disease takes a devastating toll on not just those with the disease -- but also on their caregivers.
The Alzheimer's Association is THE place to turn when facing any aspect of this devastating disease. The chapter also raises funds to advance research. Major local services include:
24/7 Telephone Helpline
Caregiver Support Groups
Early Stage Support Groups
Memories in the Making® (art program)
Education Programs for Families and Professionals
REACH (Resources for Enhancing Alzheimer's Caregiver Health)
