Letter from the CEO (3/10/2020)

Alzheimer’s San Diego to cancel all group programs until further notice

To Alzheimer’s San Diego clients & partners:

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently issued a warning that older adults avoid crowds and “stay home as much as possible” to reduce their risk of getting COVID-19 (coronavirus). Early data shows that older adults are nearly twice as likely to have a serious illness from the virus.

At Alzheimer’s San Diego, your health is our top priority. That is why I have made the decision to cancel all classes and group programs, until further notice. This includes:

  • Education classes & workshops
  • Support & discussion groups
  • Memory screenings
  • Social activities & outings
  • ALZ Companion respite visits

This is not something I do lightly, but as an organization, we believe it is the correct and responsible choice. This policy will continue until the CDC warning is lifted, but we are still here for you in the meantime.
