Central and North Florida Chapter

The Alzheimer's Association, Central and North Florida Chapter serves 43 counties with education and support as well as raising funds for research.

Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

Our Central and North Florida 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.

The state of Florida has the second highest incidence of Alzheimer’s. Within the 43 counties that comprise the Central and North Florida Chapter, the Florida Department of Elder Affairs estimates that in 2016 there were 156,643 people living with Alzheimer's disease. About 1 in every 38 people of all ages has Alzheimer’s disease in Florida. These numbers do not include the snowbirds who reside in the region during the winter months.

The Central and North Florida Chapter meets the challenge of such overwhelming numbers through a dedicated staff out of five regional offices.
