to the section of our web site for people with early-stage memory loss. "Early-Stage" refers to people, irrespective of age, who are diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia and who are in the beginning stages of the disease.  Individuals in this stage:  may still be employed; participate in community-based activities; volunteer; enjoy meeting new people; and are still active members of the family unit.  This includes persons with "younger-onset" who develop dementia under the age of 65 and are still in the early stages of the disease.

If you are at the beginning of a journey through Alzheimer's, you are not in this journey all alone.  The Alzheimer's Association National Capital Area Chapter is here to help.
