Whenever facing difficult times, having a good support network you can turn to for advice and encouragement may help you feel socially connected and give you a sense of belonging and purpose.

These groups are designed for persons with mild memory loss due to Early Stage Alzheimer’s or related disorder. Separate, concurrent groups for family members are available. Meet others in similar situations and share strategies for living with Alzheimer's disease or a related disorder.
