Use of funds

The donations made to the Central & North Florida Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association help us provide information and referral, education and training, 24/7 Helpline support, and much more.
 
The increasing impact of Alzheimer's disease allows us to continually expand our programs, services and support to meet the new and changing needs of those affected by the disease:
 
  • Today, there are more than 540,000 Floridians living with Alzheimer's disease. 
  • 1,121,000 Floridians are caregivers who provide 1,277,000,000 hours of unpaid care. 
  • In the 42 counties our chapter serves, it is estimated that there are over 120,000 individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
  • By 2025, the number of individuals in Florida with Alzheimer's could exceed 720,000. This is a 33.3% increase in a matter of just ten years.
  • Nationally, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease; researchers say as many as 16 million Americans could have the disease by 2025.
  • 1 in 8 people age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s and nearly 1 out of 2 over age 85 has the disease.
  • Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death for people in the United States; and the 5th leading cause of death for those over the age of 65.
  • 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer's or another dementia.
  • 1 in 10 Americans has a family member with Alzheimer's.
  • 1 in 3 knows someone with Alzheimer's.
  • 7 in 10 people with Alzheimer's live at home, with family and friends providing most of the care.
To help families affected by Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, we provide information & referral; support groups; a 24-hour, seven days a week Helpline (1.800.272.3900); a resource library; care consultations; educational programs and workshops for those affected by Alzheimer's, the public and health professionals; and Safe Return® to help find people with memory problems who wander and become lost. We also advocate for quality dementia care and services, and funding for public programs serving people with dementia and funding to accelerate the pace of promising research.

Thank you for your support and for helping us achieve our vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease.
