For more than 25 years, the Alzheimer's Association Colorado Chapter has lead the fight against Alzheimer's disease and related disorders by increasing the understanding of dementia and its impact on family and community, providing information and support for those affected, and promoting the advancement of research.
The Alzheimer’s Association Colorado Chapter is the premier source of information and support for the more than 60,000 people living with Alzheimer’s in Colorado, their families and caregivers. Through its statewide network of offices, the Alzheimer’s Association offers a broad range of programs and services, including a 24-hour Helpline, at no cost to families, and funds advancements in research to prevent, treat and eventually conquer this disease. The Alzheimer’s Association advocates for those living with Alzheimer’s and their families on related legislative issues, and with health and long-term care providers. Families throughout the state have access to support services through regional offices in Colorado Springs, Denver, Pueblo, Durango, Grand Junction, and Greeley.
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.
