Early-Stage Programs

The Early-Stage Social Engagement Programs offer a fun and comfortable way for people living in the early stage of Alzheimer's or other dementia and their care partners to get out, get active and get connected with one another through a variety of social events and community-based activities. These programs help promote social interaction and companionship.

Movie Monday: Join the Alzheimer's Association Miami Valley Chapter for Movie Monday at 10 Wilmington Place. A movie will be shown in a 22-seat state of the art theater with a free lunch provided by 10 Wilmington Place immediately following.

Memory Café: Dayton Metro Library is partnering with the Alzheimer's Association Miami Valley Chapter for Memory Cafe. Different speakers will be scheduled each month to present on various topics such as history, art, genealogy, and more! An opportunity to share and socialize will follow the lecture.

The purpose of Early-Stage Education and Support Group is to provide a safe and supportive environment of peers who are living in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease or other dementia and their care partners. These groups offer dementia-related education, emotional support and connections with resources so that the group members may enhance their lives in the midst of the disease.

The Early-Stage Education and Support Group is for the diagnosed individual and, when possible, their care partner.  Everyone will meet together for 30-45 minutes of dementia education, and then break up into two 30-45 minute support groups - one for those with dementia and the other for care partners.  This series is a six month time limited group.

An initial interview is required for Early-Stage Programs. For more information or to set up your interview, contact Sarah Cameron at 937.610.7012 or email scameron@alz.org.
