ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION GREATER NEW JERSEY CHAPTER TO HOST COMMUNITY FORUM IN RED BANK, NJ
A town hall-style meeting to mobilize local community members in the
fight against Alzheimer’s disease – Florham Park, NJ, January 29, 2019 – Monmouth and Ocean County residents are invited to take part in a Community Forum on Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The forum provides an opportunity for residents of all ages to come together to ask questions about the disease, share their personal experiences, learn about available resources and discover volunteer opportunities to support families affected by the disease.
“We understand the importance of Alzheimer’s disease care and support programs and services throughout New Jersey,” said Robyn Kohn, Director of Programs & Services for the Alzheimer’s Association Greater New Jersey Chapter. “Community Forums are hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association in communities across the state, where families are invited to come together with Association staff and volunteers to mobilize our community in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.”
The Alzheimer’s Association believes no individual or family should navigate the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease alone. Community forums hosted by the Association bring together families affected by the disease with dedicated staff and volunteers to open conversation in an effort to bolster resources, programs and services to support families in their communities.
Working together with Monmouth and Ocean County volunteers, the Alzheimer’s Association can ensure families have the resources needed to face the many challenges associated with the disease. Community volunteers are essential in helping the Alzheimer’s Association best serve the needs of families affected by the disease, in driving awareness and in mobilizing the community in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. The meeting details are below. Lunch will be provided:
