The Delaware Valley Chapter encourages persons who are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or a related disorder, along with their care partners, to engage in education, support and social activities.  Educational Programs specifically geared for people with the disease, can answer questions about the disease process and provide valuable information on planning.  Support Groups and Memory Cafés have been developed to provide ongoing supportive care.

The Alzheimer's Association's Early Stage Resources provide information on what you can do in the early stage to cope with the changes ahead.  It covers a broad range fo topics specific to your circumstance and can be accessed by clicking the title link above.

Arts & Culture programs are an opportunity to take advantage of the rich cultural offerings in the Delaware Valley.  Programs designed specifically for meaningful engagement with art by people with moderate stage dementia, including Alzheimer’s are offered.  Full details can be accessed from the links below.  All programs are free but require advance reservations by contacting the galleries directly:
