Living with Alzheimer's: For People with Early Stage Alzheimer's and their Care Partners

  • Sacramento, CA USA (map)

This 3-part series (held on 3 consecutive weeks) is open to individuals (and their care partners) with a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease or a related disorder, who are in the early stages and are interested in learning more about their diagnosis in an interactive program.

For Early Stage Care Partners:

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 care partners 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. This 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.

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 3-part program where you 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. This 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.
