Galveston/Bay Area Early-Stage Social Engagement Programs

Recently diagnosed with memory loss, dementia, or Alzheimer’s? The Alzheimer’s Association is partnering with Moody Gardens and Space Center Houston to offer two unique programs designed specifically for those experiencing early memory loss and a care partner.

These social engagement programs are a great opportunity for individuals with early-stage dementia to connect with others in a similar situation. A friend, family member, or care partner should attend as well and will have the opportunity to share a meaningful experience as well as connect with others.

To register, or for more information, please contact Krista Bohn – 713-314-1363 or kbohn@alz.org
