*Early-stage support groups provide a safe environment for peers who are in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias and their families. Two separate groups for the early-stage person and care-partners are led by qualified facilitators. The groups offer dementia-related education, emotional support, connection to peers, and access to resources. Groups are offered in Fall and Spring sessions in various locations in Massachusetts and New Hampshire including Holyoke.
