Early Stage Alzheimer’s Program - Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation

Early Stage Alzheimer's Program

“Early stage” Alzheimer’s disease refers to those who are in the beginning stages of the disease. In this stage, your loved one may be able to continue with their regular daily activities and sustain regular conversations. Instead of considering yourself as a caregiver, you may only be needed as a care partner. In either case, encouraging your loved one to participate in a supportive, positive, and stimulating program such as the Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation (LIAF) early stage program can help their wellbeing and help them stay healthier longer.

LIAF’s early stage Alzheimer’s disease program is designed to provide the help and support your loved one and you need. Our early stage Alzheimer’s program involves:

  • Personal support and guidance to the individual with Alzheimer’s disease
  • Education on Alzheimer’s related concerns and issues
  • An inviting environment to share experiences with others who are on the same journey
  • Opportunities to engage socially and form new social bonds
  • Meaningful activities and opportunities for cognitive stimulation and enhancement

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer’s, being involved with LIAF’s early stage program may prove to be exceptionally beneficial. We encourage you to learn more or participate in our AL’Z Club.

How an Early Stage Program Can Prevent Other Complications?

The benefits of an early stage Alzheimer’s program is widely understood by the families with loved ones suffering from the disease. Seniors in early stage Alzheimer’s disease regularly face challenges that require additional attention and care. In addition to preventing further onset of Alzheimer’s disease, LIAF’s early stage Alzheimer’s disease program can help prevent some of the other side effects, such as:

  • Isolation Prevention: By participating in our early stage Alzheimer’s program, your loved one is much less likely to isolate themselves and have problems with depression.
  • Mood swings: One of the most common problems associated with your loved one losing their memory is mood swings. Our program helps create the supportive environments to help them cope.
  • Loss of Sense of Judgement: Seniors suffering from early stage memory loss may also have the tendency to misjudge things. They may experience difficulty judging time, distances, or may believe they’ve taken their medications when they haven’t.

LIAF's early stage Alzheimer's program is designed to help slow the effects of dementia and help maintain your loved one's quality of life.
