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.

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.
