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. Based on the guidance from local public health agencies, the Maine staff are working remotely and are successfully operating in support of our mission. 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.

As always, the Alzheimer’s Association is available to you for around-the-clock support:
