The services offered by the Alzheimer's Association Greater Maryland Chapter help support and educate the more than 86,000 Marylanders who currently have Alzheimer's disease.
Through support groups, MedicAlert® + Alzheimer's Association Safe Return®, free educational opportunities and the 24/7 Helpline (1.800.272.3900), Marylanders affected by Alzheimer's disease and other dementias are given the support they need on their journey through Alzheimer's. Funds received also help fund research that is essential to the diagnosis, treatment and eventual cure of Alzheimer's disease.
The Greater Maryland Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association uses 78% of funds raised for programs, services and research efforts. For a more detailed description of how funds are specifically used, visit the About Our Chapter page and click on Financial Information.
