Living Successfully with a Memory and Thinking Disorder

Services and Resources for Individuals Living with an Early-Stage Memory and Thinking Disorder, their Family Members, and/or Friends

Learn about memory and thinking disorders

  • Meet with an Early-Stage Specialist for a Consultation over the phone or in person to learn about our services, ask questions, or engage in problem solving and planning for the future.  Ask about the Peer to Peer option!

  • Join an Early-Stage Education & Support Group.  This year-long program meets monthly and features a variety of educational topics.  The group environment naturally provides an opportunity to connect with others with similar experiences.  These groups are offered at a variety of times and locations.
