I have early stage dementia
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

A diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease or another dementia is life changing and raises a lot of questions and emotions. It can leave the person with the disease feeling isolated and unsure of where to turn for information and support.

The Alzheimer's Association wants you to know that you are not alone! Let's work together to plan, prepare, find support and live your life after diagnosis.

One of the best tools out there is our special website center developed with input from individuals living with Alzheimer's.
