Early Stage Program
The Early Stage Program is offered to people who have a diagnosis of early memory loss. It focuses on maintaining the quality of one's life as they learn to communicate with others on what it's like having memory loss so to maintain an active lifestyle. The program gives participants the opportunity to exercise, learn ways to manage the changes in memory from each other and group facilitators trained by the Alzheimer's Association RI Chapter.
Simultaneously, the program provides time for care partners to pursue their own interests. The program offers valuable information/resources to families living with someone who has a diagnosis of memory loss in Rhode Island.
An interview with a staff person is required in order to determine whether the program meets the applicant's needs. Please contact Annie Murphy, Early Stage Program Coordinator at 401-421-0008 for further information.
