Finding the Cure
The mission of the CADCs is to reduce the human burden and economic cost associated with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders and to improve the quality of life of all persons affected by Alzheimer's disease and their families by serving as centers of excellence for clinical care (diagnosis, treatment and support) and education.
With the centers located at, or affiliated with, major medical centers, they serve as a referral gateway for helping patients and caregivers become involved in meaningful research. Research is invaluable in contributing to furthering our understanding of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias to improve diagnosis and treatment interventions. Treatments can also achieve dramatic health care savings – and lives could be significantly improved – with even incremental treatment improvements, either by delaying onset or slowing progression.

Most importantly, individuals living with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias and their families have the opportunity to contribute in finding better treatments and, ultimately, a cure for this disease.
