SPECIALTY PROGRAMS

Early Stage Support Group (ESSG)
Just diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or in the early stage of the disease and wondering what to do next? Consider participating in one of our upcoming Early Stage Support Group sessions. Classes meet for a two hour block of time on Monday mornings for eight consecutive weeks. These sessions are designed to equip individuals with the disease and their care partner(s) with practical information and solutions. Using a combination of classroom training, guest speakers, and local resources attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the impact of the disease on relationship dynamics;
  • Process feelings, needs and concerns in a confidential, non-judgmental atmosphere by connecting families facing similar experiences;
  • Link to potential local resources.

Sessions will be offered:

Mondays, January 13 - March 3, 2014

PALZ- Peoria Alzheimer’s Support Group

PALZ meets in the Central Illinois Chapter Peoria office from 4:00 -5:30 p.m. the second Thursday of the month. Members also go out for dinner at 4:30 p.m. the first Thursday of the month. PALZ is an open group* that caters to BOTH families and those with memory loss. The group meets all together for the first half hour and then splits into two groups: a support group for caregivers and an activities-based group for individuals with memory loss. The patient facilitator attempts to engage participants in mentally and socially stimulating activity for the duration of the group session. Typically, participants are beyond the early stages of dementia.

* Open group: allows new members to join at any time
