I Have Alzheimer's

The Alzheimer's Association hosts a number of events throughout the year for individuals with early-stage Alzheimer's or a related dementia and their care partners. From educational to social, these events not only provide an opportunity to learn more about the disease, but help individuals with Alzheimer's stay active and socially connected. For more information call, 800.272.3900 or email at wvinfo@alz.org.


Living with Alzheimer's Education Series

The Living with Alzheimer's Program is a resource to assist people living in the early stages of Alzheimer's to remain mentally and socially active post-diagnosis. The program is for newly diagnosed patients, their caregivers and family members.  An RSVP for the program is required by calling 800.272.3900 and a brief consultation will be conducted prior to entrance in the program. At the conclusion of the three workshops, participants have the opportunity to become involved in Early Stage Engagement Groups in their local communities, which will feature a variety of group-selected social activities.
