A diagnosis of Alzheimer's or a related dementia is likely not the life path one envisions. The best way to face this disease is to continue to enjoy life. The Alzheimer's Association Early-Stage Social Engagement Program offers a fun and comfortable way for people in the early stage of the disease to get out, get active and get connected with like individuals through a variety of community-based activities and social events.
The Michigan Great Lakes Chapter has been selected to participate in the second phase of a national pilot program that brings together and offers social opportunities to individuals who are living with early stage Alzheimer's disease. We are initializing our outreach efforts to identify program participants.
COMMUNITY PARTNERS: The chapter hopes to engage community partners to assist us in our outreach. Marketing materials are currently being developed. If you can help us as we move forward to identify early stage constituents for this social engagement program, please call your regional office and speak with program staff at 800.272.3900.
PERSONS WITH EARLY STAGE ALZHEIMER'S: If you or someone you know has been formally diagnosed, is living with early memory loss, and would like to know more about this opportunity, please call your local office and speak with program staff at 800.272.3900.
