San Antonio & South Texas Chapter

The San Antonio & South Texas Chapter was incorporated in 1982. From our humble beginnings as a volunteer-driven organization that primarily served San Antonio and it's surrounding area, we have expanded into an organization with 10 staff members and over 200 volunteers who serve 47 counties.

The Alzheimer’s Association, San Antonio & South Texas Chapter, supports diagnosed individuals, their families and caregivers, and the professionals who care for them. The Chapter offers support groups, educational programs, individualized planning provided by licensed professionals, and community resource lists. It operates a 24-hour toll-free Helpline, Early Stage Programs, Safety Services for those at risk of wandering, training programs for health care professionals, and engages with governmental agencies and academic institutions to promote Alzheimer’s research and improved care and support. Last year more than 1,000,000 individuals were reached through cumulative program and education efforts, health fairs, advocacy activities, newsletters and website contact.

The Alzheimer's Association San Antonio & South Texas Chapter is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) nonprofit, donor-supported organization. Programs and services are made possible through contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations.
