Alzheimer's Association, Maine Chapter

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 local public health agencies, we are implementing the following precautionary measures:

The staff in Maine will be working remotely beginning March 16th, 2020. 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 activities will be conducted online or by phone whenever possible. Please check this page or our Facebook page @endALZmaine for details on events and updates.
 
During this time, the Alzheimer’s Association is available to you 24/7 for around-the-clock care and support: 800.272.3900 | alz.org

Thank you and stay safe.

Currently, more than 28,000 people in Maine are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and over 69,000 family and friends are providing care.

We provide education and support to all those facing Alzheimer’s and other dementias throughout our community, including those living with the disease, caregivers, health care professionals and families.
