afa_teal_webThe mission of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) is "to provide optimal care and services to individuals confronting dementia, and to their caregivers and families-through our member organizations dedicated to improving quality of life. The Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) was founded by a consortium of organizations to fill the gap that existed on a national level to assure quality of care and excellence in service to individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses, and to their caregivers and families.

Our focus is “Helping more people today than we did yesterday.” AFA unites more than 2,600 member organizations from coast-to-coast that are dedicated to meeting the educational, social, emotional and practical needs of individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses, and their caregivers and families. Under AFA's umbrella, these organizations collaborate on education, resources, best practices and advocacy —all resulting in better care for people affected by the disease. AFA believes that by raising awareness of the disease and educating healthcare professionals and the public at large, we will:

  • Help remove the fear and denial surrounding Alzheimer’s disease and related illnesses

  • Lead to early detection and proper treatment

  • Prompt greater utilization of community resources

  • Ultimately improve quality of life


Donations help fund our toll-free helpline with counseling by licensed social workers, resources and referrals; educational conferences; a free caregiver magazine, AFA Care Quarterly; national initiatives such as National Memory Screening Day, professional education, training and qualification; and Young Leaders of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America to educate and engage teens and college students.

CareZips provide an all-around more pleasant experience for all. This new-to-the-market healthcare textile provides nurses, caregivers, CNAs, or the wheelchair-enabled easier, faster, and more productive care. Socks and shoes are not necessarily removed.
