Living Well co-sponsors Early Alzheimer’s Support Group

Alzheimer’s is not just a disease of old age!

Early onset (also known as younger-onset) Alzheimer’s affects people younger than age 65. Nearly 4 percent of the 5.4 million Americans with Alzheimer’s have early onset. Doctors do not understand why most cases of early onset Alzheimer’s appear at such a young age. Many people with early onset are in their 40s and 50s. They have families, careers or are even caregivers themselves when Alzheimer’s disease strikes. In the United States, it is estimated that more than 200,000 people have early onset.

Join our support group to connect with others in your similar situation for advice, friendship, education or just a friendly shoulder for you and your caregivers or loved ones.

Free. No preregistration required.
