Denville, NJ, November 2017 – Alzheimer’s New Jersey is blanketing the state with education programs on one specific day in November to recognize Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month and to raise public  awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and the organization’s New Jersey focused mission.  All of the programs will be held on November 15. 

“While we provide community and caregiver education programs every day of the week throughout the year, we wanted to do something during Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month that tied directly to our mission,” said Julie Schuldner, Vice President, Development and Communications for the organization. “Our message to caregivers during our recent Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s events was ‘You are Not Alone,’ so we are extending that message across New Jersey by emphasizing caregiver and community education on November 15. We ARE New Jersey, we KNOW New Jersey, and when you need us, we will be here for you.”

Alzheimer’s New Jersey (formerly the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater New Jersey Chapter) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to respond to the needs of people in New Jersey who are affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, by providing programs and community partnerships that increase awareness and access to services.

“Caregivers often tell us that they could better manage the many challenges of caregiving for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia if they better understood the disease and its progression,” said Schuldner. “This special day of education during Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month is meant to provide those resources while demonstrating the wealth of programs that we have available and our commitment to helping caregivers find a sense of community and support."

The programs, which are also available beyond November, are always free and open to the public.  Pre-registration for each education program is required. For more information, or to register please call 888-280-6055.  For an overview of each program, visit https://www.alznj.org/services/community-education-programs/.
