Alzheimer’s WA is taking a proactive and cautious approach to COVID-19 (coronavirus) as some of our clients and carers may be in the high-risk category for the virus. Our priority is to protect our community including staff, clients and their families, advocates, students, partners and our visitors.
We are monitoring the situation daily and taking advice from the Department of Health. We are ensuring our protocols are best practice and offering alternative services to our clients, carers, students and partners.
Thank you for your interest in upcoming events at Alzheimer’s WA, we are currently working on an alternative solution as we are currently unable to provide in person events and training.
In this time of uncertainty, our focus is on continuing to support our community. We are here to support you and help you in any way we can. Please contact us on 1300 66 77 88 if you need any assistance and we will do our best to help you and/or point you in the right direction
