Review for Alzheimers Disease Research Foundation dba Cure Alzheimer's Fund, Wellesley Hills, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I wanted to volunteer and they basically slammed the door in my face. I was trying to help, since my grandmother has Alzheimer's, and they were very rude and inappropriate, showed a total lack of empathy. I would not associate myself with this organization. It is basically a front for non-clinical research at massachusetts general hospital, which is already well-funded.

Review for National Endowment for Alzheimer's Research, Newark, DE, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered for this group for a number of years, and I have been extremely impressed with the motivation, intelligence, and commitment of the staff and researchers, in finding a cure for Alzheimer's and working with actual patients. Based on my knowledge of the current state of their research, they have made major discoveries in 2013 and there are clinical interventions which will be announced soon. If you are looking for a high-impact organization with a reach that goes far beyond its size, this is the one to watch. The people are amazing, and in my opinion people are the bedrock of any organization. I cannot state strongly enough that this is the team that is going to vanquish Alzheimer's.
