Our Mission Statement
Jersey Alzheimer’s Association seeks to raise awareness and improve understanding of dementia throughout Jersey. By providing information and advice we seek to support anybody affected by dementia in whatever way.
Our vision is quite simply to make Jersey a more dementia friendly island where all those affected by dementia are understood, welcomed and supported.
It is essential that those affected by dementia are at the very forefront of our work and that people’s personal experiences shape the work that Jersey Alzheimer’s Association does now and in the future.
JAA will work to enable people affected by dementia to be involved, to be heard and to influence in whatever way they can.
