About us

The Alzheimer’s Association - South Carolina Chapter
The Alzheimer's Association South Carolina Chapter is the result of a 2006 merger of the Upstate South Carolina Chapter and the Palmetto Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.  The unified statewide chapter serves the entire state of South Carolina through a network of local offices.  As of July 1, 2017, the South Carolina Chapter has legally merged with the national Alzheimer's Association, but the chapter continues its leadership, advocacy and program delivery here within the state.

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.
