I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer so far.  We are new to this publication, so I thought I would start off by telling you what we do at the Alzheimer’s Association and provide you information on our resources as well as talk about the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in New Haven on 9/24/17. 

The Alzheimer's Association is a non-profit voluntary health organization which focuses on care, support and research for Alzheimer's disease. The Alzheimer's Association is the largest non-profit funder of Alzheimer's disease research.

We provide resources for those with any type of dementia.  We call ourselves the Alzheimer’s Association, as Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia.
