|Who We Are||
The Alzheimer's Association is the national voice for people with Alzheimer's disease and related dementia disorders, their families and caregivers. Nationally, over 5 million Americans have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Because of the increasing number of people age 65 and older in the United States, the annual number of new cases of Alzheimer’s and other dementias is projected to double by 2050.
Over half a million people in New Jersey are living with Alzheimer's disease or are caring for someone with dementia.
The Alzheimer's Association provides information, support, and education and training for individuals and families affected by Alzheimer's. Anyone may contact us through the 24-hour Information Helpline (1.800.272.3900), the chapter Web site (www.alz.org/nj/), or through our community education and outreach efforts.
