The Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region has modified our service delivery and suspended all community outreach programs to support system-wide efforts to slow the transmission of COVID-19 in the community.
Our Community Resource Centre at 403 Ontario Street in St. Catharines is closed to the public until further notice.
What remains unchanged…
We will continue to support people living with dementia, their families, healthcare professionals and the community at large during this unique and challenging time. Our staff team is working remotely and are reaching out regularly to the clients on caseloads and participants of our education programs and social/support groups.
You can count on us for information, support, navigation, counselling, social work and education. We will continue to respond to all emails, phone messages, faxes and online requests. All inquiries are being checked daily and phone messages are checked hourly between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm.
We are still accepting referrals by fax and online. Our secure online referral form is preferred (http://www.alzheimerniagara.ca/refer).
Our in-home respite program is continuing with our third party providers. Contact your provider for any updates or cancellations.
We are working on creative ways to offer educational and recreational services through the Zoom online platform. Our provincial office is looking into virtual opportunities that will be posted on our website as they are confirmed.
Please regularly check our website for updates and virtual opportunities.
