Early Stage Services

Living well with dementia starts by empowering yourself with the right information, resources and connections.  We can help address your growing concerns, enable earlier treatment, and empower you and your loved ones to plan for the future, including financial and legal matters.

Family Consultations

We are here to help by providing information, support, guidance and resources.  The goals of an Early Stage consultation include:

  • Create personalized care plan
  • Answer questions
  • Referrals to services and programs
  • Educational materials and event information
  • Information about clinical trials, medications and research

The Memory Club

A comprehensive support, education and peer group that meets weekly for individuals (and their care partners) experiencing early stage symptoms of memory loss due to mild cognitive impairment, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder.
Participants explore subjects such as:

  • Understanding the disease
  • Family dynamics
  • Safety
  • Planning for the future
  • Coping techniques

The Graduation Club

Graduates of the Memory Club who meet criteria are encouraged to continue in the “Grad Club.” This group meets twice a month using experiences and challenges of each family to promote discussion. Additional topics include:

  • Cognitive stimulation
  • Reminiscing
