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.

As of April 1, 2022, educational programs and support groups will be offered in person with some virtual options still available.

The staff in our Canton office will continue to work remotely. We are prepared with technological and other means, for our staff to successfully operate in support of our mission.
Alzheimer’s Association services and 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.
