EPIC - Early-stage Partners In Care
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

  For more information on the EPIC Program please call your local Regional Office.

A collaborative team that includes the Desert Southwest Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, the Department of Economic Security Aging & Adult Services, Arizona State University, and the Area Agencies on Aging, is proud to announce the EPIC program.

The EPIC Early-stage Partners In Care program is intended to assist people with early-stage memory loss and their care partners by providing free early-stage related education and training workshops designed to reduce stress, enhance well-being, and help manage challenges.

Currently we are looking for approximately 80 early-stage individuals and their care partners. Individuals will be asked to participate in a confidential interview prior to beginning the workshops and either 3 or 6 months after the initial interview to help us continue to improve the program.

The free educational workshops will cover such topics as:

* Early-stage memory loss and it's impact
* How to manage your concerns, stress and distress
* How to prepare for changes because of the memory loss
* How to stay engaged and plan for the future
