At the Alzheimer’s Association, diversity is integral to our mission and vital to our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s disease and all other dementia. We seek to be inclusive of the millions of people currently affected by Alzheimer’s disease, their caregivers and the communities in which they live. The Alzheimer’s Association views diversity broadly and includes considerations such as, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, gender identity, age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, regional, place or national origin, religion, language and persons with disabilities.
As the American population ages and becomes increasingly more diverse, the Alzheimer’s Association will expand its mission activities to remain inclusive and meet the demand for culturally and linguistically sensitive education, information, care and support.
The Alzheimer’s Association believes we must create a society in which people feel safe, cared for and valued.
