THE COALITION

The Coalition of New York State Alzheimer's Association Chapters is the only statewide organization representing all New Yorkers affected by Alzheimer's disease and dementia.  

For more than 30 years, the Coalition’s seven chapters have provided care consultations, consumer and professional education programs, a 24-hour Helpline, safety services and support groups to the 390,000 Empire State residents living with Alzheimer’s disease and the 1.1 million caregivers who support them.

Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's. We align with and promote the work of the Alzheimer's Association by increasing concern and awareness, advancing public policy and enhancing care and support through robust advocacy, partnership and programmatic initiatives.
