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.

The State Policy Office of the Alzheimer’s Association in California fulfills the national Alzheimer’s Association mission.  Our priorities reflect the consensus of California’s five chapters and 20 local offices to advance statewide public policy issues. The policy office identifies and influences issues that demonstrate a direct, positive link to people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia disorders and their families. Through the leadership of the state policy office families drive policy decisions that impact persons with dementia, their families and caregivers.
