Creating Local Partnerships

WORKING TOGETHER FOR A CURE

Alzheimer’s Association Community Partnerships


The Alzheimer’s Association works with local service providers and family members to support the creation of local Community Partnerships. Each Community Partnership is a self-sufficient task-oriented alliance of healthcare and human service professionals, family members and other concerned individuals working to increase and improve local services through: education, coordination, outreach, and advocacy. Each Partnership works closely with the Alzheimer’s Association, helping the association to be more responsive to local needs and in turn helping the association with advocacy and outreach.

To learn more, contact the Partnership closest to you, or call the Alzheimer’s Association Helpline at 800-272-3900.

Mission Statement
Partnerships are regional volunteer coalitions comprised of healthcare and human service providers, associated professionals, family and caregivers dedicated to providing education, outreach, advocacy and support for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and their families and caregivers. Through a Partnership model in alliance with the Alzheimer’s Association MA/NH Chapter, (Association), members share resources, increase public awareness and understanding of these illnesses, strive to improve the quality of care and access to community services and promote the importance of research and research funding.

Alzheimer’s Association Community Partnerships Core Values:

  • Dedication and commitment to the Alzheimer’s Association’s mission
  • Open communication
  • Teamwork and volunteerism
  • Valuing diversity and differences
  • Non-promotional in nature

Relationship of Partnerships to the Alzheimer’s Association:

Partnerships were initially established by the Association in 1985 to support grassroots outreach of the Alzheimer’s Association. All the Partnerships work in alliance with the Alzheimer’s Association to reach the goals of a World Without Alzheimer’s and support to those living with dementia. The Partnerships work should align with the Association mission and strategic goals. Each Partnership will have an Alzheimer’s Association Staff Liaison to support the efforts of the Partnership.  The Alzheimer’s Association Community Partnerships act as extensions to the outreach efforts of the MA/NH Chapter, and are part of the Community Engagement team of the Association.
