Supporting Families Dealing with Alzheimer’s and related dementias in North Carolina
Alzheimer’s North Carolina is dedicated to providing education, support and services to individuals with dementia, their families, health care professionals and the general public while raising awareness and funding for research of a cause(s), treatment, prevention and cure for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
What We Do
Alzheimer’s North Carolina provides family support, community education, public awareness and supports research for the prevention, cure and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. Over 170,000 people in North Carolina are affected by Alzheimer’s and these numbers are expected to increase to 210,000 by the year 2025.
We provide assistance with information, educational programs and services to individuals with dementia, their families, health care professionals and the general public. Through support groups, Helpline and networking with other nonprofits and local, state and federal agencies, additional information and care is provided.
Our organization was founded at Duke University in 1980, relocated to Raleigh in 1985 through a generous grant from the Kate B. Reynolds Health Care Trust and moved to the Cameron Village area of Raleigh in 1989. In 1992, additional office space was acquired for a Family Resource Center which includes general information, family assistance materials and our lending library of books and videos. Recently, we relocated to 9131 Anson Way, Suite 206 in Raleigh.
