About the Alzheimer's Association
Currently, 410,000 New Yorkers are living with Alzheimer's disease, and more than 546,000 family and friends are providing care. Serving the cities of Corning, Geneva, Elmira and Rochester, and their surrounding counties, the Alzheimer's Association Rochester Finger Lakes Region Chapter is here to help.
We provide education and support to all those facing Alzheimer's and other dementias throughout our community, including those living with the disease, caregivers, health care professionals and families.
We are also committed to advocating for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer's disease and all other dementia, and advancing critical research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.
With staff and volunteers we are able to offer 24/7 support, family training seminars, care consultations, support groups and educational programs for the public, healthcare professionals and caregivers. The chapter has influenced public policy changes and has provided support to Alzheimer's and dementia research in the hope of finding a cure.
