Living With Alzheimer's: For Early Stage Individuals And Their Caregivers

  • Roseville, CA

This is a 4-part series that is open to individuals diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers. There will be two programs designed to meet the needs of each group.

For the Early Stage Individual: The diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease is life-changing and leads to many questions. What will this mean for me and my family? How do I plan for the future? Where can I get the help I need? Join us for this 4-part program where you will hear from others who have been where you are. We will discuss what you need to know, what you need to plan and what you can do as you navigate this chapter of your life.

Each Participant will receive a "Taking Action" Workbook. The program will cover:

  • Understanding Alzheimer's disease and memory loss
  • Legal, financial and resource planning that needs to be done in the early stage
  • Components of a care team and how to successfully work with each component during the early stage of the disease
  • Strategies to engage the mind, body and spirit in coping with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia

For Caregivers: When someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's, friends and family have many questions. What does the diagnosis mean? What kinds of plans need to be made? What resources are available to help? Hear from those directly affected and learn what you need to know, what you need to plan and what you can do at each point along the way. This program is designed to provide caregivers with the knowledge, tools, and strategies needed to cope with a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia.

Each participant will receive a "Tips for Caregivers" workbook. The program will cover:

  • Symptoms of the early stage of Alzheimer's disease
  • Legal, financial and resource planning that needs to be done in the early stage
  • Components of a care team and how to successfully work with each component during the early stage of the disease
  • Strategies to engage the mind, body, and spirit in coping with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia
