The Alzheimer’s Association Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter recently announced it will begin offering education programs online amid the COVID-19 Health Crisis as the association continues to pursue its mission.
Based on guidance from local public health agencies, the chapter is replacing all in-person community programs across Massachusetts with web-based educational programs. These no-cost programs feature information on topics including the signs of Alzheimer’s disease, diagnosis, communication strategies, living with Alzheimer’s and caregiving techniques.
All online programs can be found at http://communityresourcefinder.org beginning March 23.
“The health and safety of our constituents, volunteers and staff remain our driver as we address the COVID-19 outbreak,” said Jim Wessler, CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association MA/NH Chapter. “We are committed to executing our mission at the highest possible level. Offering these education programs online will help ensure individuals living with Alzheimer’s, caregivers and their families continue to have access to these crucial resources.”
While the Alzheimer’s Association staff is working remotely, operations will continue to support the organization’s mission. The Alzheimer’s Association’s 24/7 helpline is fully operational and is available for around-the-clock care and support at 1-800-272-3900. Through this free service, specialists and master’s-level clinicians will continue to offer confidential support and information to people living with the disease, caregivers, families and the public.
