Early stage programs
If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or early stage dementia, involvement in early stage programs can be very helpful. Participating in a positive, supportive, and stimulating program may enhance personal well-being and may help individuals with these diagnoses to remain healthier longer.
If you or someone you know is experiencing memory problems but you have not yet seen a physician, we strongly encourage you to make an appointment and have these concerns evaluated. This can be done through your primary physician or through a local Memory Assessment Clinic.
Early stage programs offer:
- Education on dementia-related issues and concerns
- Personal support
- A welcoming environment to share with others who are experiencing similar issues
- Opportunities for cognitive enhancement and meaningful activity
Some early stage programs also include opportunities for caregiver support. For questions or additional information, contact the Alzheimer's & Dementia Alliance at 608.232.3400 / 888.308.6251 or send us an email.
