Alzheimer's Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter

We Are Here for You!


We serve 24 counties in Northwest Ohio including Allen, Ashland, Auglaize, Crawford, Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Hancock, Hardin, Henry, Huron, Knox, Lucas, Mercer, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam, Richland, Sandusky, Seneca, Van Wert, Williams, Wood, and Wyandot. 

We provide consultation, education, and support to those facing Alzheimer's and other dementias throughout our community, including those living with the disease, caregivers, 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.

If you are looking for a way to become involved with the Alzheimer's Association, we are actively recruiting program volunteers for opportunities such as delivering our community education programs, facilitating a caregiver support group or early stage social engagement activity, or representing us at health and wellness community events. We are currently accepting new volunteer applications online.
Go to volunteer.alz.org to learn more about how you can become a program volunteer!
