Early Stage Memory Loss Support Groups

Often, persons in the early stages of a progressive memory loss illness recognize changes in their abilities. they sometimes experience frustration, anger, sadness, and depression. The Alzheimer's association offers an avenue of support to these diagnosed individuals. Early-Stage Memory Loss Support Groups provide an opportunity for individuals to receive information about the disease, to socialize with peers who face similar circumstances, and to talk about their experiences.

Participants must be in the early stages of memory loss, be aware of their diagnosis, and be able to participate in discussions.
