Mission & History.

Alzheimer’s Los Angeles was founded by concerned community members in 1981 with a mission to improve the lives of families affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia by increasing awareness, delivering effective programs and services, providing compassionate support, and advocating for quality care and a cure.


Dementia is a general term for loss of memory, language, problem-solving and other thinking abilities that are severe enough to interfere with daily life.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia in older adults. Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and, eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks.
Scientists don’t yet fully understand what causes Alzheimer’s disease in most people. The causes probably include a combination of age-related changes in the brain, along with genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors.

In Closing.

Lisa’s dedication and expertise make her a valuable asset to the Latino community, working tirelessly to create positive change and foster a sense of connectedness and empowerment. With her leadership, the community is better equipped to face challenges and embrace opportunities for growth and well-being.
