Early Stage support groups are specifically designed for individuals with early memory loss, who have been diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment, Early Stage Alzheimer’s or a related disorder and their families and friends. The Early Stage Support Groups run in 8 week series where the same individuals meet every week to discuss different topics and offer each other emotional support, connections, and advise. The group splits into two rooms with the individuals with early memory loss in one room and care partners in another room. Topics that the group will discuss include:
- Understanding the disease
- Disclosing a diagnosis
- Changing ways of communicating
- Relationship changes
- Practical planning for the future
There is a brief screening process to ensure that the group is a good fit for everyone. If you are interested in attending the group and would like to schedule a screening interview please contact Karen Harris at 303-813-1669x207.
