About us

Here you’ll find more information about us, our history, our mission and our vision for the future. 

Who we are

Previously an arm of the UK Alzheimer’s Society, Jersey Alzheimer’s Association (JAA) was formed in 2010 to support everyone in the island affected by dementia in whatever way.

Jersey now has over 1500 people diagnosed with some form of dementia and many more that we don’t know about.

Since 2012 we have experienced a dramatic 235% increase in demand for our services and now regularly welcome over 400 people to our events and activities each month.

 

Our team

JAA has approx. 12 staff­ in various positions supported by the regular and invaluable input of over 30 dedicated volunteers. View our people page for more on who they are and what they’re doing to help make Jersey a more dementia friendly island.
