Our HistoryThe Alzheimer's Association, Central Ohio Chapter started in 1979 as an informal group of volunteers and caregivers concerned about the care provided for individuals living with Alzheimer's disease. These visionaries were charter members of the National Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association headquartered in Chicago and the Public Policy Office in Washington D.C. The Association has since developed into an organization that reaches thousands of people each year through clinical, education and direct patient care programs.
