Alzheimer's Association, West Virginia Chapter

Currently, more than 37,000 West Virginians are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and over 107,000 family and friends are providing care. 

Headquartered in Charleston, with regional offices located in Parkersburg and Morgantown, the West Virginia Chapter serves all fifty-five counties in West Virginia.

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.
