If you have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's or another dementia, you are not alone. Our early-stage initiative provides comprehensive programs for individuals living with early-stage Alzheimer's disease or related dementias.
Changing Gears Education Program
A dementia diagnosis can feel life-altering. While the disease is difficult, you do not have to stop living. This 4-week series is an educational program about shifting your focus and way of life, in order to make living with Alzheimer's disease easier for you and your care partner. This program covers the basics of Alzheimer's disease and extends into planning and preparing for the months ahead. We encourage individuals and their caregivers to attend all sessions.
