Who We Support
Alzheimer’s Association’s COVID-19 response
During this challenging time, the Alzheimer’s Association remains ready to support you. Our 24/7 Helpline is fully operational, and is available to you for around-the-clock care and support at 1-800-272-3900. You can also find tips for caregivers and other resources on our website at alz.org.
In the near-term, the Alzheimer’s Association MA/NH Chapter will be offering community programs virtually. All of these web-based programs will be posted on communityresourcefinder.org.
In addition, we are actively developing resources for families living with dementia to help with the isolation that many are now experiencing. We will post these materials on alz.org/manh as soon as they become available.
Our staff remains committed to supporting all of our volunteers and constituents in any way we can. Please feel free to reach out to your staff partner with any questions or concerns.
