Early Stage Services

"Early-Stage" refers to people, irrespective of age, who are diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia and who are in the beginning stages of the disease. Individuals in this stage may still be employed; participate in community-based activities; volunteer; enjoy meeting new people; and are still active members of the family unit. This includes persons with "younger-onset" who develop dementia under the age of 65 and are still in the early stages of the disease.

Please call 800.272.3900 - our 24/7 Helpline - for information.
