Alzheimer’s Association–Desert Southwest Chapter

Contact Information

Telephone: 520-322-6601
Email: m.hartford@alz.org
Website: http://alz.org/

The Desert Southwest Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association impacts thousands of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and their families. Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of the aging process. It is a degenerative, incurable disease of the brain. The impact on individuals, families and our health care system makes this one of our greatest medical, social and fiscal challenges. Today, there are an estimated 120,000 individuals from all socio-economic, ethnic and racial groups afflicted with Alzheimer’s in Arizona and Southern Nevada, and an additional 350,000 family care partners impacted on a daily basis. Increasing age is the greatest risk factor, as one in nine individuals age 65+ and one in three of those age 85+ are affected.
