Welcome to the section of our website for people with early-stage memory loss. Here you can find information about Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other types of dementia. You can also learn about ways to cope and live successfully with the challenges that a diagnosis of dementia can bring. By clicking on the links in the box below you can access information that’s most relevant to you.

Our Chapter’s Early Stage Services are here to assist and support you. We can provide information by telephone or in private counseling sessions for you, your care partners and family members. We also have three programs that are specifically designed for individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) or early-stage dementia. For details about either of these offerings, click here.
