It’s summertime in New Jersey. What a fabulous time of year. The Jersey Shore, vacations, beautiful parks and recreation areas, barbecues, carnivals; a time to build and share treasured memories with family and friends.
But, beyond the summer fun and laughter, there is pain for too many families in our community. They are faced with the loneliness of losing precious memories shared with a spouse, a parent, or a grandparent.
Caregiving for someone with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias can be physically and emotionally overwhelming. Despite the challenges and stress of caregiving, Alzheimer’s New Jersey’s programs and support can help make time spent with family and friends – treasured time.

Our vital programs also include: caregiver education, support groups and Helpline.
