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:
- Five to six sessions
- Each session is 1.5 hours long
- Held in the spring, summer and fall
- Offered online until further notice
Contact Diane Hendricks at 800.272.3900 for more information about registering for an upcoming early-stage support group.
Early-Stage Social Engagement
