Cleveland Area Chapter

Currently more than 220,000 people are living with Alzheimer's disease in Ohio and more than 600,000 family and friends are providing care.

Serving Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake and Lorain counties, the Alzheimer's Association Cleveland Area Chapter is here to help. We provide education and support to all those facing Alzheimer's and other dementias throughout our community, including those living with the disease, caregivers, health care professionals and families. We are also committed to advocating for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer's disease and advancing critical research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure. What we do and how we help - it's all here.
