About Jersey Alzheimer's Association


Jersey Alzheimer's Association was formed in April 2010 following a breakaway from the Alzheimer's Society in the UK. We continue to offer the same services and support for people in Jersey that we have done for over 20 years, the only difference is that we are a local charity run BY local people FOR local people.

We are registered with the Jersey Financial Services Commission, the Income Tax Department and the Association of Jersey Charities (AJC) No 359. We are also full members of Alzheimer Europe.

Jersey Alzheimer's Association provides help and support to local people living with dementia and their families in a number of ways as detailed on the following pages. 

The charity campaigns for people with dementia to stay in their own homes for as long as possible with improved home care support. We promote Person Centred Practice in all areas of care and seek to ensure that people with dementia are treated with dignity and respect at all times. Jersey Alzheimer's Association works to improve current services, and to support people with dementia and their families in order that their quality of life is maintained to the highest degree possible.
