I Have Alzheimer's

If you have been diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment, Alzheimer's, or another dementia, you are not alone.
There are people who understand what you are going through, and help is available. There is much you can do in the early stage to cope with the changes ahead.

Know What to Expect

The Alzheimer’s Association WNY Chapter offers a variety of support programs for individuals experiencing Mild Cognitive Impairment or early-stage Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia. Pre-Screening is required to participate in one of the groups.

Living With MCI or Early-Stage Alzheimer’s Disease Education Series

We provide a multi-session class every quarter for care partners and individuals recently diagnosed. Join us to find planning tips and strategies to help you live your best life with this disease and to meet others going through similar experiences.

Social Events

We facilitate monthly programs to have fun, stay busy and get connected to others going through similar experiences with their diagnosis. Programs are free with in-person and zoom options. Examples of social events include Art Today with the Buffalo AKG Museum, Interactive Music Program presented by Maple City Music Therapy, Lunch Bunch, a BINGO Night, and a virtual Pilates class. These events are open to your care partner as well.

Support Group

We hold a monthly support group for those living mild cognitive impairment or the early stage of Alzheimer’s and related dementias. This group provides a confidential space to process and share with your peers the range of emotions and challenges that can come with a diagnosis.

Online Chat Room

ALZConnected is a free online community to meet others, share your story, learn from and support each other.
