Mission Our mission is 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.
Background Founded in 1980, the Alzheimer’s Association is the world’s leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care and support and the largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s research. Today, it includes 78 chapters across America with the home office located in Chicago. Our vision is A World Without Alzheimer’s Disease®.

The Oklahoma Chapter of the organization formed in 1996 after merging the entities that were based in Tulsa and Oklahoma City. Since that time, the Oklahoma Chapter has established itself as a leader within the Association’s chapter network, earning numerous awards for high performance over the last eight years.

Today, the Oklahoma Chapter resides in five different communities throughout the state – Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Lawton, Enid, and Ada. In 2017, the Chapter provided 62,000 points of touch to those affected by the disease and to the general public through our core services.

The Alzheimer’s Association works across the country to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease, enhance care and support of those affected, develop public policy to advocate for those facing the disease and fund the research that will end the disease.

· We are recognized as the nonprofit organization with the highest impact in Alzheimer’s research globally, the Alzheimer’s Association has invested more than $410 million in nearly 2,700 best-of-field investigations. We have played a role in most of the major advancements in Alzheimer’s research.

· The Alzheimer’s Association developed the first criteria and guidelines for diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease in the 1980s, realizing that an early and accurate diagnosis of Alzheimer’s is essential to optimizing medical care and planning for the future.
· The Alzheimer’s Association recently revised our Dementia Care Practice Recommendations for paid caregivers to incorporate the latest in evidence-based, person-centered best practices. The recommendations were published in early 2018 as a supplement to The Gerontologist®.
· The Alzheimer’s Association is the national leader in working with health systems and long-term care providers to increase access to a timely diagnosis and quality care.
· The Alzheimer’s Association and AIM were instrumental in a 2016 decision by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to cover cognitive and functional assessments and care planning for patients living with Alzheimer’s and other cognitive impairments. Health care providers can now be reimbursed for a wide range of care planning that includes identifying caregiver needs, assessing care directives, planning for palliative care, and referrals to community services.


No family should have to face Alzheimer’s disease alone. The dedicated staff of the Alzheimer’s Association is working in Oklahoma to significantly grow the number of families who receive affordable, high-quality care and support for living better with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.  We hope that you will help us to reach and assist them. 

We need volunteers who will help us to reach people across this state, offering them help and hope for the future.  We also need financial support to continue to offer our free educational programs and supportive services to those who are affected, while funding the research needed to end this disease.

CEO/Executive Director Statement Our mission guides our work in both the short term and long term.  Our most immediate work is to help caregivers of people who are living with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia.  Our long term hope is to advance the research necessary to discover treatment and a cure. 
Board Chair Statement The effort to advance Alzheimer's research and awareness has never been more important than it is today. Over 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's, and as many as 16 million will have the disease in 2050. We are working tirelessly to change the trajectory of the disease with advancements in treatment.

Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program. At this time we still don't know some of the key causal factors for this disease, but the research has begun to offer a glimmer of hope.  Soon, we hope to better understand the characteristics and causes of Alzheimer's disease to further progress in developing more effective treatments, prevention methods and ultimately a cure.  
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state. Our long-term success would include finding effective treatments, prevention methods and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer's disease and other dementia.  Finding a way to arrest this disease - and the heartbreak and financial devastation - would change the future forever. 
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact. Success is monitored by senior management and the Medical and Scientific Advisory Council.
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success. The year 2007 entered the history books as a period of tremendous advances in Alzheimer research. These advances occurred on all fronts, encompassing areas as diverse as genetic risk factors for Alzheimer's, imaging studies to identify Alzheimer's in the living brain and blood tests that may one day be used to diagnose Alzheimer's.
Description Care Connections is a comprehensive system of education and services that provides an entry point for caregivers seeking information about Alzheimer’s disease as well as customized services to support affected families and those living with dementia. Free to families, our programs include a 24/7 Helpline, Family Care Consultations, Caregiver Counseling, Support Groups, Information and Referral, Professional Healthcare Training, and a range of educational presentations provided for families, community centers, educational institutions, first responders, and healthcare and senior service agencies.
Population Served People/Families of People with Health Conditions Aging, Elderly, Senior Citizens
Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program.
Family and professional caregivers must be able to understand the progression and associated behaviors of Alzheimer's disease in order to cope with the longevity and unrelenting needs.  The communities around them must also understand the characteristics of dementia, opening the conversation for first responders, professional medical personnel and corporate entities.  Ultimately, our work helps communities to be knowledgeable about Alzheimer's disease, families are better able to communicate with and care for their loved one with Alzheimer's, and together, they can keep loved ones socially active and in the home as long as possible.
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state.
We know that 30% of dementia caregivers die before the person who has the disease.  We work to improve the quality of life for people affected by Alzheimer's disease through dementia-specific education, fostering of communication methods and caregiving strategies, and connection to local resources. We also work to train professional caregivers and first responders to understand the needs of those with dementia.
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact.
Surveys are conducted for every educational program and results are regularly reviewed. Feedback from families we have helped enable us to enhance our programs and services to better meet the needs of the growing epidemic that is Alzheimer's disease.
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success.
The success, depth and customization of our direct assistance and educational programs is difficult to describe in our own words.  Below are the comments from on family we have helped: 
"There are no words to describe how grateful I am we consulted with you.  Your personalized approach and help was incredibly valuable.  If not for you, we wouldn't have known what our options were.  If you ever have days that you wonder if you are where you need to be, let me tell you that you are.  We were in the dark and you gave us light.  We all want you to know your help was so appreciated."
