Learn from the True Experts: Those Living with a Diagnosis

A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s certainly changes life. But you can continue to contribute to your family and community. Focusing on the brain's strengths rather than deficits empowers you to improve quality of life with purpose. Learn from interviews with the true experts – families living with a recent diagnosis. In this series, participants from our Alzheimer's Discovery Program tell their stories. Each one is unique and provides a personal point of view for how to manage change and move forward.

We are here to help families with a diagnosis or individuals who have noticed changes in themselves or a loved one.  Our goal is to help families realize continued potential and enjoyment of life while they forge a positive path in the midst of a diagnosis – by pushing pause, setting a plan and then moving forward with intention.

Alzheimer's Discovery is moving online to reach more families. We expect our program to be available May 2022. Please read more information and fill out the form to receive updates.
