Our free classes, support groups and early stage social offerings are here to provide information and support for those facing Alzheimer's or another dementia.

We currently offer three types of community education programs:

In-person: Where you see a location noted, that program is hosted locally for people to learn together in-person. Registration is requested.

Live Webinar: Most of our programs are offered live via a webinar platform. Registration is required, and registrants will be sent additional webinar details prior to the date of the program. Participants will be given the option of joining via video/webinar or through a toll-free number.

On Demand: Pre-recorded classes are available for immediate access.
