The Alzheimer’s Association Rhode Island Chapter has made access to many of its support groups available online and/or by telephone amid the COVID-19 outbreak as the association continues to pursue its mission.
Based on guidance from local public health agencies, the chapter is working to replace in-person community support group meetings across Rhode Island with either live-streamed, web-based formats or chat forums available by telephone. These no-cost programs provide information to individuals coping with a range of situations related to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, including those living with the disease, those in the early stages or who have younger-onset, and their care partners.
All available online support groups can now be found and accessed at communityresourcefinder.org. A listing is also provided below.
