A collaborative team that includes the Desert Southwest Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, the Department of Economic Security Aging & Adult Services, Arizona State University, and the Area Agencies on Aging, is proud to announce the EPIC program.

The EPIC Early-stage Partners In Care program is intended to assist people with early-stage memory loss and their care partners by providing free early-stage related education and training workshops designed to reduce stress, enhance well-being, and help manage challenges.

Currently we are looking for appoximatey 80 early-stage individuals and their care partners. Individuals will be asked to participate in a confidntial interview prior to begining the workshops and either 3 or 6 months after the initial interview to help us continue to improve the program.

The free educational workshops will  cover such topics as:

*  Early-stage memory loss and it's impact
*  How to manage your concerns, stress and distress
*  How to prepare for changes because of the memory loss
*  How to stay engaged and plan for the future
