Alzheimer's Association, Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter
Who we are
The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. We’re the largest private funder of Alzheimer research and the premier source of information and support for the estimated 5 million Americans with Alzheimer’s disease, their families and caregivers.
Incorporated in 1980, the Association's Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter is a founding chapter of the national Alzheimer's Association and operates out of a main office in Waltham, MA with regional offices in Springfield, Worcester and Raynham, MA and Bedford, NH.
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.
Why join usMany of us who work for the Alzheimer's Association have some connection with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. It's what drives us to make the extra effort in the daunting task of modifying a disease that currently has no cure.
