Alzheimer’s Association lists virtual meetings

Posted

Based on the guidance from local public health agencies, the Alzheimer’s Association has transitioned its support groups from in-person meetings to gatherings that take place remotely.

Staff- and peer-led groups will meet at their regularly scheduled times, but using telephone and online meeting services.

Support groups are open to all caregivers of individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia. Some groups have specialized audiences, including spousal caregivers and individuals living with early-stage dementia. To obtain instructions on how to join a group by phone or online, call 315-472-4201 and dial extension 228 at the prompt.

Alzheimer’s Association support groups provide an opportunity for people to share personal experiences and feelings, and coping strategies. All support groups are free of charge to attend and facilitated by trained individuals.
