Alzheimer's New Jersey

For over 35 years, we have been here for our local communities, providing care and support for families impacted by Alzheimer’s disease. Our 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.

Family Support Groups

During the COVID-19 health crisis, we are hosting telephone and Zoom support groups  to continue our goal of providing caregivers, families, and friends the emotional support and education they need to better understand and manage Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. These groups are a great way to connect with other people who are facing the challenges and issues that arise when a loved one has dementia. ALZNJ support groups are facilitated by trained and experienced volunteers and staff. Our groups meet bi-weekly or monthly, depending on the group you join. See the Schedule

If you would like to join a Support Group, please complete and submit the online Support Group Inquiry Form or call our Helpline at 888-280-6055.  If you submit the Inquiry Form, an ALZNJ staff member will contact you shortly.

Respite Care and Wellness Program

Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s can be emotionally and physically exhausting, and span a period of years.

Our Respite Care and Wellness program is designed to provide family caregivers with information and education about the importance of regular time-off from caregiving, and help link them to available community-based respite care resources.  We also provide financial reimbursement of $1,000 to help support the cost of respite care services.

Always Safe®

A Personal Safety Program for People With Dementia

Always Safe® is a safety awareness program designed for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.  Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are at a greater risk for personal safety issues due to their impairment in memory and cognition.

Always Safe provides individuals and families with educational information and resources about home and personal safety and provides professional education and training about Alzheimer’s and dementia to New Jersey law enforcement and emergency first responders.

For more information about our Always Safe Program, please call 973.586.4300

Clinical Trial Connections® Program

Clinical research trials test new ways to detect, treat and prevent Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Clinical trials offer the opportunity for individuals to participate in studies, while also helping others through the advancement of research.  Recruiting and retaining clinical trial participants is one of the greatest obstacles to developing the next generation of Alzheimer’s disease treatments.

Our Clinical Trial Connections program provides assistance to individuals and families who may be interested in participating in a clinical trial.  The program helps individuals and families find available trial programs within their community and within nearby communities.
