Population(s) Served

Education and training is a priority community service for Alzheimer’s New Jersey. Education is essential to Alzheimer’s caregivers in carrying out their responsibilities. Caregivers often share that they would be less stressed and better able to cope with the many challenges of caregiving if they better understood the disease and its progression; particularly as this relates to the changes in behavior and communication that are often exhibited by those with Alzheimer’s. Our education programs are designed to increase caregiver knowledge of the disease, diagnosis, communication within the healthcare system, available local services, and caregiving strategies.
