Local Support Group hosted by the Alzheimer's Association and the Vanderbilt Memory & Alzheimer's Center In collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association, we offer support groups for individuals recently diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment or early stage Alzheimer’s disease and their loved ones. The support group offers a comforting environment for people with new onset or early symptoms of memory loss to talk with other adults who understand their experience. How does it work? While individuals with memory loss are participating in one group, their loved ones (such as spouses, partners, and adult children) attend a second group held at the exact same time. This group not only provides helpful resources, but it also provides the opportunity to connect with family members who appreciate the experience of having a recently diagnosed loved one.
