COVID-19 RESPONSE
The health and safety of our constituents, volunteers and staff remain our driver as we address the COVID-19 outbreak and as we continue to pursue our mission, today and in the longer term. 
 
Based on the guidance from the National office of the Alzheimer's Association and the Rhode Island Department of Health, we are implementing the following precautionary measures beginning March 13th, 2020. Our staff will be working remotely. We are prepared with technological and other support for our staff to successfully operate in support of our mission.
 
Alzheimer’s Association operations will continue, and we will re-evaluate 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 participation both in internal and external activities will be conducted online or by phone whenever possible. Please check alz.org/ri and our Facebook @alzassocri for details on meetings, programs and events.
 
We will be offering our support groups and educational programs virtually by webinar or by teleconference based on the Covid-19 outbreak.

Coming to terms with the diagnosis requires time. Immediate reactions of denial and fear are normal and may help you and the person diagnosed process the grief you are feeling.
