The Alzheimer's Association Illinois Chapter dedicates donations to providing information, support, programming and services for the more than half million Illinois residents affected by Alzheimer's throughout the 87 counties we serve. We also provide information on current Alzheimer-related research and tips for living a brain-healthy lifestyle. The impact of Alzheimer's - both long-lasting and far-reaching - causes us to continually seek new ways to expand our reach so that we can meet needs of Illinois residents regardless of where they live or where they are in the disease process.
