Early Stage Support
With people being diagnosed earlier and younger than they had been in the past, the Delaware Valley Chapter recognized that the client base was changing and the Association needed to add new programs to provide the appropriate services for the persons with dementia and their families. Not only did the Chapter add the Learning Together support Group eight years ago, a specialized support group for persons with dementia and their caregivers, now, the Chapter is implementing initiatives that include programs for people in the early stages that go beyond the support group model. For more information e-mail Kerry Brown, Associate Director Clinical Services or call 215-561-2919.
