Early Stage Support

If you have been recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, Mild Cognitive Impairment or another form of dementia, know that you are not alone. Your diagnosis is now part of your life, but it does not have to define who you are. The Alzheimer’s Association Orange County Chapter has resources and information to help you and those close to you through this journey.
