NEW YORK >> To help individuals affected by Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers continue to stay active and engaged during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) has created the “AFA Teal Room,” a new page on its website that is home to a free library of virtual activity and therapeutic programming. Programs, which are free, open to all and held daily, can be viewed by visiting www.alzfdn.org/afatealroom.
“It’s critically important for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers to stay active, engaged and stimulated—it benefits their cognitive, mental and physical health, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr., AFA’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “The AFA Teal Room provides daily activities they can follow along with and participate in from the comfort and safety of home. We invite families living with Alzheimer’s disease to visit our website to take advantage of this free service.”
Activity programs at the AFA Teal Room include:
• Virtual tours
Programs are held daily as well as available to be viewed on the site any time after their scheduled air date. To watch and participate in any of the programs, or view a list of upcoming classes, visit www.alzfdn.org/afatealroom.
