Early-Stage Support Groups
Early-stage support groups provide a safe and supportive environment of peers who are living in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease or related dementia and their care partners. These groups offer dementia-related education, emotional support and connections with resources so group members may enhance their lives in the midst of the disease.
Early-Stage Support Groups feature the following:
- Eight sessions
- Each session is 1.5 hours long
- Held in the fall and spring
- Offered in Lincoln and Omaha
Contact Mollie George at 800.272.3900 for more information about registering for an upcoming early-stage support group.
Early-Stage Social Engagement
The Early-Stage Social Engagement program offers a fun and comfortable way for people living in the early stage of Alzheimer's or other dementia to get out, get active and get connected with one another through a variety of social events and community-based activities. These events are determined by individual needs and interests of the participants, and promote social interaction and companionship.
Examples of Early-Stage Social Engagement events include:
- Art to Remember tours at the Joselyn Art Museum
- Outings to local breweries and wineries
- Ice cream tours and socials
