In 2009, two local business owners' families were separately hit with the devastating disease known as Alzheimer's. They spent years struggling to find local, relevant support and information to improve the quality of life for their loved ones. After several years of researching, training, living, caring and comforting their loved ones with Alzheimer's disease, they decided something more had to be done. So, they sold their successful fragrance business and launched Act Now Foundation.


Since 2012, Act Now Foundation, a grass roots not-for profit, has worked tirelessly to raise awareness, advocate and educate New Jersey about Alzheimer's disease, prevention, and early detection.

The foundations' work continues in memory of francisca I. Lopez.
"She will continue to be our inspiration and motivation to build Awareness about Alzheimer's disease."

We are part of the 44 million Americans who have been touched by Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

We effect meaningful change and build hope for those who are affected by Alzheimer’s.


We provide community support needed to give the best quality of life for Alzheimer's patients and their families.


We conduct memory screening to detect the symptoms of dementia early and give people an opportunity to prepare.


We reduce the impact of Alzheimer’s on urban communities and engage these communities to build supportive, capable, and Alzheimer’s educated environments.
