Our mission
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 vision
A world without Alzheimer's disease.

Background: The Alzheimer's Association opened its doors in 1980 as one of the founding Chapters of our national association. In the fall of 1999 the Eastern Massachusetts and the Western Massachusetts Chapters joined together to form the Massachusetts Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. In 2007, the Chapter assumed responsibility for providing services to families and professionals living and working in New Hampshire. Throughout both states, we strive to offer a high level of programs and services.

National Association: The Alzheimer's Association is a single nonprofit organization, the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting families and professionals and working to find effective treatments and a cure for Alzheimer's. Massachusetts/New Hampshire is one of over 70 chapters of the Alzheimer's Association throughout the nation, enabling us to assist families, wherever they live.

Research: The Alzheimer's Association is the largest private investor in innovative research related to Alzheimer's and related disorders. The Alzheimer's Association has a highly regarded scientific program. Working with thousands of expert reviewers around the globe, we provide millions of dollars in research grants every year. The Alzheimer's Association also sponsors the largest international research conference on Alzheimer's. In addition, the Association works to educate the public about exciting developments in the research community. The Alzheimer's Association TrialMatch™ program is a free service that makes it easy for people with Alzheimer's, caregivers, families and physicians to locate clinical trials based on personal criteria (diagnosis, stage of disease) and location.

Offices: To meet the increasing demands for service and support, we have expanded programs, and have five offices around Massachusetts and New Hampshire: Watertown, Raynham, Springfield and Worcester, MA and Bedford, NH.
