Alzheimer’s Association support groups remain remote through fall

SYRACUSE - Based on the guidance from local public health agencies, free education programs offered by the Alzheimer’s Association, Central New York Chapter will remain online until further notice. Programs are delivered through an easy-to-use online meeting system available to users on desktop or portable computers, and mobile devices.

“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,” said Catherine James, Alzheimer’s Association, Central New York Chapter Chief Executive Officer. “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.”

The chapter presents more than 500 education programs annually throughout the region. These programs, offered free of charge, include information on topics including the signs of Alzheimer’s disease, diagnosis, communication, living with Alzheimer’s and caregiving techniques.
