Early Stage Support

“It was wonderful to meet and be around people who are in the same situation. We felt overwhelmed until we started coming to these meetings.” – Take Charge Graduate

Take Charge is a specialized, 5-week program to help you, your friends and family understand what to expect, how to plan for the future, and connect with others on the same journey. It is designed for people recently diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment or dementia and their care partners to attend together.

Sessions will cover:

  • Week 1: Adjusting to a new normal
  • Week 2: Understanding the changing brain & how to keep it healthy
  • Week 3: Partnering with your healthcare providers
  • Week 4: Quality of life
  • Week 5: Planning for next steps and the future

The next session starts in August 2021, and it will be held remotely using Zoom. A brief screening is required to enroll. If you’re interested in signing up, call Alzheimer’s San Diego at 858.492.4400 and ask to speak with a Clinical Care Coach to get started.
