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.

If you are at the beginning of a journey through Alzheimer's, you are not in this journey all alone. The Alzheimer's Association Southeastern Virginia Chapter is here to help. Connect to our Community Calendar for our Early Stage Programs or call our helpline at 800.272.3900 to learn more about our early stage services.
