A message from the Alzheimer’s Association in Relation to COVID-19
As a Terre Haute Chamber member, we at the Alzheimer’s Association are committed to helping our neighbors, families and local businesses navigate the complexities of Alzheimer’s disease and all other dementia. No one should face Alzheimer’s alone, especially in a time like this.
Please feel free to share these no-cost resources with Chamber members so they can pass along to their customers and clients who may need of vital, virtual resources:
The Alzheimer’s Association 24/7 helpline (800.272.3900) is available around the clock, 365 days a year. If you, a loved one or anyone you know needs to talk, do not hesitate to reach out. Their professional staff provides reliable information and support to all those who need assistance. This service accommodates more than 200 languages.
The Alzheimer’s Association website, alz.org, is a rich resource designed to inform and educate those living with the disease, caregivers, volunteers and professional health care providers.
The Alzheimer’s Association has COVID-19 tips for dementia caregivers. Most likely, dementia does not increase the risk for COVID-19, just like dementia does not increase the risk for the flu. However, dementia-related behaviors, increased age and common health conditions that often accompany dementia may increase risk.
The Alzheimer’s Association is here 24/7. Thank you for sharing these tools with our fellow Chamber members, and for your leadership in our community during this time.
