When Jerome H. Stone learned of his wife Evelyn’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease in 1970, he took a disease that was cloaked in silence and helped to create a global conversation.
Founded in 1980 by Mr. Stone and a group of family caregivers, the Alzheimer’s Association® now reaches millions of people affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias as the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
