The Alzheimer’s Association is still operational and continuing to help families each day living with dementia. Their 24/7 Helpline is available at 1-800-272-3900 to anyone who needs to talk about the challenges of dementia during this time, and they can help address feelings of isolation, and link you to important resources that can help though this uncertain time.  In addition they are now offering all their Educational Programs and Support Groups virtually, learn more at: https://www.alzmassnh.org/virtual-programs/  . In the coming weeks they’ll be launching virtual ALZ Meetups to offer persons living with early stage dementia social engagement with peers.
