ABOUT THE ALZHEIMER'S ASSOCIATION The Alzheimer’s Association® is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

An estimated 55 million people worldwide are living with dementia. In the United States alone, more than 6 million have Alzheimer’s, and over 11 million are providing unpaid care.
