Unlocking Potential in Spite of a Diagnosis

Alzheimer's Discovery™ has helped hundreds of families forge a positive path after an early-stage diagnosis – by pushing pause, setting a plan and moving forward with intention.

We are now enrolling participants for an online research study. This 4-month study is for individuals with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or other dementia AND a care partner. You will learn about how to promote brain health in Alzheimer’s via video training, testimonials from families, and online peer-to-peer discussions.

If you are ready to see if the study is a good fit for you and your family member, just click on the “Interest Form” and complete a few questions.
