Based on guidance from the CDC and local public health agencies, the North Central Texas Chapter is implementing the following precautionary measures.
The staff of the North Central Texas Chapter is working remotely. The Alzheimer's Association is prepared with technological and other support to successfully operate in support of our mission. We have postponed important education programs such as the Spring Symposium, transitioned caregiver support groups to an online format, and added new virtual education programs.
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. Until then, all meetings, events and participation in activities will be conducted online or by telephone whenever possible.
The Alzheimer’s Association is available to you 24/7 for around-the-clock care and support via our Helpline at 1.800.272.3900. You can also stay connected by subscribing to our weekly E-news and following our NCTX Chapter Facebook Page.
