Susan Lilly recently wrote an advice piece about the help that is available for families facing Alzheimer’s disease in New Jersey. The advice was important, but the resource information provided about the Alzheimer’s organizations in the state was incorrect. As Alzheimer’s New Jersey, we wanted to take this opportunity to clarify who we are, what services we provide and our contact information.
Since 1985, Alzheimer’s New Jersey (formerly the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater New Jersey Chapter) has provided support, assistance and information to families impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. With offices in Denville, Oradell, Princeton and Red Bank, Alzheimer’s New Jersey encourages people struggling with Alzheimer’s disease to call our helpline at 1-888-280-6055 or visit our website, www.alznj.org.
Our website also provides important information about our upcoming Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s events—which are happening in September and October. One hundred percent of the funds raised support New Jersey families with local programs such as our Respite Care and Wellness Program, Support Groups and Caregiver Education.
Thank you for this opportunity to clarify this important information.
President and CEO,
Alzheimer’s New Jersey
