Participants

This program was developed to engage individuals in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease or related disorders and their care partners. "Early-stage" refers to people, irrespective of age, who are diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or related disorders and are in the beginning stages of the disease. In this stage, they retain the ability to participate in daily activities and a give-and-take dialogue. This includes those persons with "younger onset" who develop dementia before65 and are still in the early stages of the disease.

Goal

This program provides a natural, social atmosphere allowing individuals in the early stages of the diagnosis, as well as their family members or care partners, to share in the development of a social community. The goal of the programs in the Alzheimer's Association's Early Stage Initiative is to elevate the voices of those living with early-stage Alzheimer's, to change public perceptions about who has the disease, and what it means to be living with Alzheimer's and related dementias.
