Early Stage Initiatives

The Delaware Valley Chapter has established a multi-level program to engage people who are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or a related disorder through education, support and social engagement.  Educational Programs specifically geared for people with the disease, can answer questions about the disease process and provide valuable information on planning.  Early Stage Support Groups have been developed as a second level to provide ongoing supportive care.  The REC Center, currently based in Philadelphia and Marlton, is an ongoing opportunity for individuals in the earliest stages of dementia to actively participate in social engagement opportunities, volunteer, advocate and meet with their peers.  Our Arts & Culture program is a opportunity to take advantage of the rich cultural offerings in the Delaware Valley.

Explore Winterthur's beauty and history!
Individuals in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease or a related disorder are invited to join us for this special interactive program.  Enjoy thematic tours of Winterthur Museum collections in a relaxed environment with plenty of time for consideration and discussion.   Plan to bring a family member or friend to accompany you on this unique historical journey.  Please note: this is not an Alzheimer's Association Delaware Valley Chapter program.
