Why the Alzheimer's Assoication Illinois Chapter Opportunities

Why the Alzheimer's Association

Alzheimer’s is more than just memory loss — it is a progressive and fatal disease. Currently, more than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s and 11 million provide unpaid care for them. Locally, the disease continues to devastate our families, finances and future.

In Illinois, there are: 
  • 230,000 people are living with Alzheimer’s. 
  • 383,000 people who care for them.
  • In 2021, these caregivers provided 483,000,000 hours of unpaid care valued at $8,806,000,000.


We are here to help. The Alzheimer's Association leads the way to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support. At the Illinois Chapter, we provide free education, support programs and services to individuals living with dementia, caregivers, community members and healthcare professionals.
