Promoting a Dementia-Friendly

Marlborough, Massachusetts

MetroWest Alzheimer's Community Partnership Senior Center / Library Outreach Project

The MetroWest Alzheimer's Community Partnership is an affiliation of the Alzheimer's Association, Massachusetts / New Hampshire Chapter. Partnerships are regional volunteer coalitions comprised of healthcare and human service providers, associated professionals, family and caregivers dedicated to providing education, outreach, advocacy and support for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias and their families and caregivers. Through a Partnership model in alliance with the Alzheimer's Association MA/NH Chapter, members share resources, increase public awareness and understanding of these illnesses, strive to improve the quality of care and access to community services and promote the importance of research and research funding.

 

The MetroWest Alzheimer's Partnership Senior Center / Library Outreach Project goals are to provide local senior centers and libraries with resource information on Alzheimer's disease and connect families and caregivers to services offered through the Alzheimer's Association.

 

The Alzheimer's Association is dedicated to providing care and support for those affected by the disease, as well as advancing research into causes, treatments and cures. With headquarters in Waltham, and regional offices in Raynham, Springfield, Worcester, MA and Bedford NH, the Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter provides programs and services such as support groups, professional training, educational programs, care consultation and a 24 / 7 Helpline at 800.272.3900.
