The Northern California and Northern Nevada Chapter offers programs and resources to support people living with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), Alzheimer's, or another form of dementia or memory loss.
*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all support groups and most social engagement programs will be hosted via phone or video conference instead of in-person. Please locate your local program in the Community Resource Finder or contact our 24/7 Helpline (800.272.3900) for details..
Early Stage Support Groups
Our early stage support groups are for the person with a physician’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder, who is comfortable discussing their diagnosis and symptoms, and wants the opportunity to talk with others in a group setting.
Most groups include a separate care partner group. Pre-screening is required prior to enrollment. For more information call Judy Filippoff at 408.372.9937
Living With Alzheimer's
The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease is life-changing and leads to many questions. What will this mean for me and my family? How do I plan for the future? Where can I get the help I need? In this three-part education program, you will hear from others who have been where you are. You’ll learn what you need to know, what you need to plan, and what you can do as you navigate this chapter of your life. The Living with Alzheimer’s series can be found at our online Education Center at training.alz.org.
Socialization is an important part of life, and we offer opportunities for people affected by Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia to come together. Social Engagement opportunities include museum tours, park tours, brain games, and casual video meetups. Get to know other people living with dementia in a supportive environment, while learning something new. Space and screening requirements vary, and some are open to people currently living with memory loss, regardless of whether they have a diagnosis.
