If you are in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia or if you are experiencing changes in your memory, this section is for you.

You are not alone. There is help and support available. Each spring and fall, the Alzheimer's Association of Colorado hosts an educational workshop for those living with mild memory loss, dementia, or Alzheimer's and their care partners. To be added to a cohort list, please email, Kelly Osthoff, Senior Director of Programs.

In this section, you will find tips and resources to increase your comfort, allow you to remain active and help you cope. But more important, we hope you will find the inspiration to make your years ahead the best that they can be.

Special planning needs of early stage individuals

Care Consultations

Care Consultation provides support, solution-focused care planning and referral to community and chapter services for family members who are caring for a person with dementia. It is aimed at those care givers who are overwhelmed by stress and exhaustion, have difficulty finding services, are confused about symptoms and care giving and/or face complicated family problems.
For further information, call the 24-Hour Helpline at 800.272.3900.

Enrollment Programs for Wandering

At some point during the disease 70% of people with a diagnosis will wander. While this may not be a concern for you yet, a wandering response service, such as MedicAlert® with 24/7 Wandering Support, can provide you with greater independence for a longer period of time while offering peace of mind for your family and friends.
