Currently, 410,000 New Yorkers are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and more than 1 million family and friends are providing care.
Serving the cities of Corning, Elmira and Rochester, and their surrounding counties, the Alzheimer’s Association, Rochester & Finger Lakes Region 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 all other dementia, and advancing critical research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.
As the first FDA-approved drug that delays decline due to Alzheimer’s disease, the approval of aducanumab (Aduhelm™) is a victory for people living with Alzheimer’s and their families.
