Diversity and Inclusive Statement 

At the Alzheimer's Association, diversity is imperative and integral to our mission. It is vital to what we do, and is a promise we make to those we serve. Our team of dedicated professionals understands that valuing diversity and inclusiveness is critical to the success of our mission.

We seek to be inclusive of the millions of people currently affected by Alzheimer's disease, their caregivers and the communities in which they live. We will continue to cultivate relationships with diverse communities by sharing our time, talent, resources and exchanging ideas.

African-American

African-Americans are more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease than other populations. Get resources and special reports for this population.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT)

Challenges may be common among caregivers or they may be singular to you and your situation. As an LGBT caregiver, you may also have additional considerations or concerns.

SAGE (Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Elders), an Association national partner, has launched a new program that provides training and consulting on LGBT aging and inclusion issues to service providers and organizations. In addition, this new program, called SAGECare, recognizes organizations once they have received this training. Qualifying organizations such as the Association receive a SAGECare credential (bronze, silver, gold or platinum) based on the type of training received and the percentage of staff trained at each chapter. 

The Alzheimer's Association St. Louis Chapter is proud to have received a Platinum SAGECare credential.
