Meetup Groups for Individuals With Early Stage Alzheimer's Disease and Care Partners

Memory Meetup and Mentor
We are a group that likes to do something, learn something, share something and change something. Meetup members describe our group as The Trailblazers. 

This program is designed to build a safe and comfortable social meeting space, both virtually and in-person, for individuals with MCI and early Alzheimer’s disease. In-person social meetings occur once a month at a Twin Cities location, which is determined by the group and then posted on the Meetup Group website.

Mentors with MCI and early Alzheimer’s disease connect with newly diagnosed individuals who have contacted the Alzheimer’s Association Helpline or who have participated in an Association-affiliated early stage programs. Mentors call and connect with the individual and invite them to join the Memory Meetup online and in-person social gatherings.

Time, dates and group locations vary. Please check the upcoming events section below and visit the Meetup Site for your region.

For more information, please contact Debbie Richman, vice president, education and outreach or Marsha Berry, education manager
