The Alzheimer's Association – Greater East Ohio Area Chapter dedicates donations to providing information, support, programming and services for the more than 60,000 people affected by Alzheimer's who are in the 17 counties we serve. We also provide information on living a brain-healthy lifestyle and research into the cause, treatments, preventions and cure for Alzheimer's.

The impact of Alzheimer's - both long-lasting and far-reaching - causes us to continually expand our programs, services and support to meet the new and changing needs of our constituents wherever they are in the disease process.

  • Nationally, more than 4.5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease; researchers say as many as 16 million Americans could have the disease by 2025 

  • 1 in 10 people over age 65 has Alzheimer's and 1 in 10 over age 85 has the disease 

  • 1 in 10 Americans has a family member with Alzheimer's 

  • 1 in 10 is an Alzheimer caregiver 

  • 1 in 3 knows someone with Alzheimer's 

  • 7 in 10 people with Alzheimer's live at home, with family and friends providing most of the care

  • People live with Alzheimer's eight years, on average, but the disease could last from three to 20 years after symptoms begin

To help families affected by Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, we offer frontline support to individuals affected by Alzheimer’s disease through a wealth of community programs and services, such as care consultation, information and referral, support groups, education, the Safe Return™ program and its HelpLine, which provides callers with information and support 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  The Chapter is committed to assist families in meeting the challenges of Alzheimer’s and to help improve the quality of life for all of those affected by this progressive and degenerative brain disease. 

The Alzheimer's Association is the only national non-profit voluntary organization dedicated to conquering Alzheimer’s disease through research and to providing education and support to people with Alzheimer’s, their families and caregivers. Since it’s founding in 1980, the Association has provided nearly $140 million to support research into the prevention, treatment and eventual cure of Alzheimer’s disease.

Thank you, for your support and for helping us serve thousands of families affected by Alzheimer's today and for helping us achieve our vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease.
