Early Alzheimer's Support & Education (EASE) Program:
EASE is an 8 week interactive learning program for people with early stage memory loss and their care partners. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, as well as, current research and treatment plans. Other topics covered during the 8 weeks include legal and financial preparation, communication and compensatory strategies, home safety and community resources. A support group is also offered at the end of each session.
We currently have openings for our EASE group beginning in late October. This VIRTUAL program will take place every Friday, beginning October 22nd through December 17th (with the exception of Nov. 26th due to Thanksgiving holiday), from 10 a.m. - Noon. Registration and pre-screening is required. Contact Sierra Snoddy at 518.675.7214 or firstname.lastname@example.org and she will connect you with your local dementia care specialist.
