COVID-19 (Coronavirus) precautions

The health and safety of our constituents, volunteers and staff remain our primary concern as we address the COVID-19 outbreak and continue pursuing our mission.  Based on guidance from local public health agencies, we are implementing the following precautionary measures beginning March 12.

Staff in the Greater New Jersey Chapter's area will be working remotely. We are prepared with technological and other support to successfully pursue our mission under these circumstances.
 
Alzheimer’s Association operations will continue, and we will reevaluate these measures on an ongoing basis and resume in-person engagements as soon as we are able, based on public health guidelines.
 
Meetings, events and other activities will be conducted online or by phone whenever possible. For updates on meetings and events, please check

Support Programs
Alzheimer's Association Support Group programs provide people with Alzheimer’s, their caregivers and others affected by the disease the opportunity to exchange information as well as develop methods and skills to solve problems. Participants are also able to develop mutual support and social relationships while learning about available resources.  To find a Support Group near you, view the full listing by County below, detailing the meetings held in our Chapter's area.

Memory Cafés - What is a Memory Café?
Memory Cafés engage families dealing with Early Stage memory loss in a relaxed environment, promoting social interaction and support. As we face these lifestyle changes, let's remember that we each have an important story to tell.
We're in it together.

Alzheimer's Community Forums
Held throughout our service area to bring greater understanding and involvement:

  • Learn about Alzheimer’s, dementia and memory loss.

  • Share your thoughts about how we can help people in your community.
