The Alzheimer's Association Helpline (800-272-3900) operates 24-hours a day, seven day a week in 140 languages. Our staff is highly trained and knowledgable about all aspects of Alzheimer's disease and the programs and services offered by the Association. The Helpline is partially funded by Genesis HealthCare. Call us if you have questions about:

  • Alzheimer's disease or memory loss, medications and treatment options, brain health and care options
  • How the Association can help you
  • Caregiving tips and respite care options
  • Services available in your community and referrals

You can also call us for emotional support -- as often as you need. We know that living with Alzheimer's can be overwhelming at times. Remember, we are here for you -- all day, every day.

Email help

If you prefer, email Angela Recchiuti, Helpline Coordinator.  We check e-mail box daily and will respond to your inquiry within 72 hours.

Early Stage Support

With people being diagnosed earlier and younger than they had been in the past, the Delaware Valley Chapter recognized that the client base was changing and the Association needed to add new programs to provide the appropriate services for the persons with dementia and their families. Not only did the Chapter add the Learning Together support Group eight years ago, a specialized support group for persons with dementia and their caregivers, now, the Chapter is implementing initiatives that include programs for people in the early stages that go beyond the support group model. For more information e-mail Kerry Brown, Associate Director Clinical Services or call 215-561-2919.

Care Consultation

Our professional staff is dedicated to helping people navigate through the difficult decisions and uncertainties people with Alzheimer’s and their families face at every stage of the disease. We can provide care consultation services to you by telephone, e-mail or in person. These include:

  • Assessment of needs

  • Assistance with planning and problem solving

  • Supportive listening
