We Are The Alzheimer's Foundation of America

The mission of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) is to provide support, services and education to individuals, families and caregivers affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias nationwide, and fund research for better treatment and a cure.


It's time to talk about Alzheimer's. It's time for a memory screening. Be proactive about your brain health and get screened!
