THE COALITION

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

For more than 30 years, the Coalition's seven chapters of the Alzheimer's Association offer in-person support in every county of New York, including care consultations, consumer and professional education programs, a 24-hour Helpline, safety services and support groups. 

The Coalition partners with healthcare professionals, long-term care providers, community agencies and others to ensure New Yorkers receive the vital care they deserve.

Through robust statewide advocacy and education, the Coalition advances public policy, provides and enhances care and support, and increases concern and awareness of Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
