During early-stage Alzheimer's, the beginning stage of the disease when changes in memory, thinking and communication become noticeable, individuals may have difficulty completing complex responsibilities and require more time to complete normal daily tasks. Family caregivers can adjust to living with Alzheimer's disease through an understanding of early-stage symptoms, making adaptations in daily living routines and roles, and planning for future changes and needs.

This program will offer information for caregivers about adjusting to the diagnosis, developing a care team, accessing community supports and resources, and making legal, financial and safety plans for the future.
