Our Early Stage Initiative engages people who are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or a related disorder through education, support and social engagement.

Visit CommunityResourceFinder.org to find an early stage program near you.

Education

Educational Programs specifically geared for people with the disease, can answer questions about the disease process and provide valuable information on planning.

Support

Early Stage Support Groups
Do you have a loved one who was recently diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer's disease or another dementia?  The Nebraska Chapter offers Early Stage Alzheimer's disease and other dementias Support Groups designed for care partners and their loved ones with a diagnosis of an early stage dementia.  They participate in a non-threatening environment to discuss issues dealing with emotions affecting the loved one with dementia, the caregiver, the family and others as well as promote ongoing education.

Please contact Diane Hendricks at 402.502.4301 or dhendricks@alz.org for more information, questions, or to reserve your spot.

Peer-to-Peer
Anyone can listen. Not everyone can understand. The Alzheimer's Association Early-Stage Peer-to-Peer Outreach Program is a unique service designed to connect newly diagnosed individuals with others living in the early stage of the disease. Via telephone, volunteers will answer questions, share their perspectives and experiences, and provide information about Alzheimer’s Association programs and services. For more information, call our 24/7 Helpline at 800.272.3900.
