The Eastern North Carolina Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association

         

Our Work

The Alzheimer's Association is the world's leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research for 5.4 million Americans living with Alzheimer's and the people who care for them. The Alzheimer's Association, which was founded in 1980 by a group of caregivers, is the largest private funder of Alzheimer's research.

According to the latest Alzheimer’s Association Facts and Figures report, North Carolina is home to more than 160,000 individuals living with Alzheimer’s and half a million unpaid caregivers. The Eastern North Carolina Chapter is responsible for providing programs and support services, information, referral, education and advocacy to the 51 counties of Eastern North Carolina.
