The mission of the Alzheimer's Association 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. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's disease.
The Colorado Chapter of Alzheimer's Association serves all 64 counties in Colorado through our 8 offices in Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Greeley, Pueblo, Durango and Grand Junction. There are over 71,000 people in the state living with Alzheimer's and a quarter of a million caregivers. As the 6th leading cause of death in this country, we will strive to provide the best support possible until we find a cure.
