Review for Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

I am unimpressed with this organization. I never got any help from them when my wife had Alzheimer's. They don't actually fund most of the Alz research - the NIH does that - but they sure seem to take credit for it. Their administrative and fund raising expenses are very high. They lobby Congress for more money for Alz care and research - which I suppose is good - but I am pretty sick of the hype about every "breakthrough" - which may help people 5 or 10 years from now, but won't help anyone already suffering from dementia. How about helping the caregivers who are dealing with this every day of their lives?
