We're moving forward with plans to host Walk in person this fall, and we hope you will join us. Walk is full of flowers, each carried by someone committed to ending this disease.

They keep raising funds and awareness for a breakthrough in the fight against Alzheimer's and all other dementia. It's time to add your flower to the fight. Register for Walk to End Alzheimer's today!

Virtual Advocacy Forum celebrates a year of accomplishments
The 2021 Alzheimer's Impact Movement (AIM) Advocacy Forum, the nation's premier Alzheimer's disease advocacy event, was reimagined as a virtual gathering. More than 2,300 attendees engaged in online meetings with members of Congress and heard from legislators, Alzheimer's Association and AIM leadership, and dedicated advocates making a difference in the lives of everyone impacted by dementia.

Late stage of Alzheimer's can last from several weeks to several years
As Alzheimer's advances, intensive, around-the-clock care is usually required, and the needs of the person living with the disease will change. During the late stage, a caregiver's role will focus on preserving quality of life and dignity. Learn more.

Caregivers may experience feelings of loss and grief
It's normal to feel a sense of loss or grief when you care about someone living with Alzheimer's. You're entitled to these emotions and may begin to experience them as soon as you learn of the diagnosis. Learn more.
