When will Support Groups meet in person?
Due to the fact that we serve high-risk individuals, Alzheimer’s San Diego will continue to require masks and social distancing at all in-person, indoor gatherings for the foreseeable future. Due to the social distancing, not all locations will have the space needed to meet at this time. As a result, support groups will continue to meet virtually via Zoom. Support Group Coordinator Ellen Boucher will contact you when that changes. To participate in an in-person group, volunteers and attendees must fill out a signed waiver and email it to Ellen at firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here to download the waiver >>
What are my options if I cannot attend a support group meeting in person?
Alzheimer’s San Diego will always have virtual support groups available for you to attend. Please call Support Group Coordinator Ellen Boucher at 858.966.3305 to discuss options of virtual support groups for you to choose from.
