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.

Our next EASE group will be held virtually. The programs will take place every Tuesday, beginning January 31 through March 21, from 10 a.m. - Noon. Registration is required, as is a pre-screening. To learn more, contact Tony Rivera at tarivera@alz.org or 518.675.7214.
