The Layton Aging and Alzheimer’s Disease Center is a comprehensive research, clinical care and education center directed toward identifying the causes of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, as well as understanding how to ensure healthy brain aging throughout life.

In order to provide a brighter future for families, the Center is dedicated to conducting innovative, forward thinking research. It is recognized as one of the best venues for this work as part of a network of 30 national centers funded by the National Institutes of Health.

Many of our supporters give in memory of a loved one who received exceptional care here, or who believe in the value of our cutting-edge research. Your gift in honor or memory of a special person is a meaningful investment in the brain health of future generations and 100 percent of your gift dollar goes directly to support care or research.

Donate through your State Tax Refund

To advance important Alzheimer’s research in our state, Oregon health care professionals and medical researchers have established The Oregon Partnership for Alzheimer’s Research (OPAR). OPAR administers the Oregon Alzheimer’s Research Tax Checkoff Fund which allows Oregonians the opportunity to donate a portion of their state income tax refund directly to Alzheimer’s research.
