About Alzheimer’s New Jersey®

Location:

425 Eagle Rock Ave, Suite 203, Roseland, NJ 07068, US

Mission Statement

To respond to the needs of people in New Jersey who are affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, by providing programs and community partnerships that increase awareness and access to services.

Description

For over 38 years, Alzheimer’s New Jersey(r) has been here for our local communities, providing support to families impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. In 2015, our Board of Directors made the difficult decision to disaffiliate from the Alzheimer’s Association in response to the Association’s decision to merge all independent Chapters into a single national corporation - ending local authority to make independent decisions impacting our communities.

We changed our name from Alzheimer’s Association, Greater New Jersey Chapter to Alzheimer’s New Jersey(r) to maintain our vital local focus as an independent New Jersey not for profit organization. We knew then what we know now - New Jersey’s 600,000 people affected by Alzheimer’s need an organization completely dedicated to them.

As an independent NJ nonprofit, we are focused on providing compassionate programs and services to improve the quality of life for local families and to help make each day the best day it can be while living with the impact of this overwhelming disease. We offer a comprehensive range of local programs and services that serve the state year-round, including our Helpline, Respite Care and Wellness Program, Community Education Programs, Family Support Groups, Always Safe(r) and Clinical Trial Connections(r) program.
