Our new report reveals the burden of Alzheimer's and dementia on individuals, caregivers and the nation's health care system.
Currently, in Texas more than 400,000 are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and over 1,449,000 family and friends are providing care.
Serving Amarillo, El Paso, Lubbock, Midland and the surrounding areas, the Alzheimer’s Association West Texas 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.
