Based on the guidance from local public health agencies, the Alzheimer’s Association, Central New York Chapter 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 or online meeting services.

Where support groups have previously been organized by geographic area, the virtual nature of these groups makes them accessible to anyone regardless of location.

To obtain instructions on how to join a group by phone or online, call 800.272.3900.
