Join the Campaign

Faith leaders and communities nationwide are fostering spiritual connection and meaningful engagement for those living with dementia and supporting families, as they educate members about Alzheimer's and other dementias and advocate for a cure. 

For those living with Alzheimer's and other dementias, caregivers, and society at large, Alzheimer’s and related dementias can be emotionally and financially ruinous.

Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias generate catastrophic healthcare, economic, and social impacts—and these impacts are rapidly growing.

Take action to support families and stop Alzheimer's.
