We are actively monitoring updates and recommendations issued by the Government of New Brunswick and the Public Health Agency of Canada related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and will share updates to our operations here as thing evolve.

Supporting you through COVID-19

We remain committed to providing ongoing services while we go through this challenging time together. We are very happy to have re-opened our offices to the public, and have made the following changes based on New Brunswick Public Health requirements and recommendations to ensure our offices are a safe space for everyone:

  • Guests are encouraged to make an appointment in advance by calling 1-800-664-8411 or emailing [email protected]
  • Visitors are encouraged to call upon arrival to complete a pre-screening check over the phone. Once completed, they will be invited inside and staff will greet them at reception desk.
  • Visitors are required to wear a mask when entering the office space and will be asked to sanitize or wash their hands.
  • High traffic public areas are sanitized a minimum of twice daily (door handles, counter tops, elevator buttons, light switches).
  • Staff will be sanitizing common areas and equipment before and after use.
  • Posters are on display throughout the offices as reminders of physical distancing requirements and etiquette.
  • Hand sanitizer, spray sanitizer and paper towels are available throughout the office.

Programs

While our in-person programs are currently on hold to help contain the spread of the coronavirus, we are excited to offer several virtual programs to those living with dementia and their care partners.

Online Fall Learning Series: Throughout the month of October, we will address a different topic related to caregiving and the dementia journey each week for 3 weeks during this virtual series. Presenters include Alzheimer Society staff and special guests who will address topics such as Understanding Behaviour, Adult Services, and Wealth Planning for Aging Canadians. Click here for more details.

Virtual Caregiver Support Network: Starting in November, we will be offering virtual meetings for family members that care for someone living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia in lieu of our traditional in-person Caregiver Support Networks. If you are interested in participating, please reach out to us at 1-800-664-8411 for more details.

If you have questions about programs, services or how to help us reach those who are isolated, call us 1-800-664-8411 or email [email protected].
