The Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Illinois Chapter,  serves 68 counties in Illinois with offices in Bloomington, Carbondale, Chicago, Joliet, Rockford, and Springfield.

Since 1980, the Chapter has provided reliable information and care consultation; created supportive services for families; increased funding for dementia research; and influenced public policy changes.

Today, the Greater Illinois Chapter serves the more than half million Illinois residents affected by Alzheimer’s disease who are in our chapter area, including 210,000 people with the disease plus family members and caregivers.
