Raise awareness of Alzheimer's disease this June by sharing your story, wearing purple and taking action. The more people know about Alzheimer's, the more action we inspire.
In North Carolina, more than 180,000 are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and over 356,000 family and friends are providing care.
Serving 49 central and western counties in North Carolina, the Alzheimer’s Association - Western Carolina Chapter is here to help. We provide education and support to all those facing Alzheimer’s and other dementias throughout our community, including those living with the disease, caregivers, health care professionals and families. We are also committed to advocating for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer’s disease and advancing critical research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.
Participate in one of our free local programs in person or from home, including education programs, support groups, and advocacy events.
Bring Alzheimer’s education to your community by scheduling a program with one of our Community Educators. The Alzheimer's Association offers this free service for any group interested in providing a learning opportunity for their audience.
