Welcome to the Alzheimer’s Association Heart of America Chapter Early Stage blog! Approximately monthly, we will invite an early stage advocate from our chapter to contribute to the blog. We create this blog to provide a venue for people in the early stage of memory loss to share stories of how they live meaningful, full lives while coping with Alzheimer’s Disease and related disorders. Our purpose is to:
- support and provide insight to individuals in the early stage of disease and their families and
- advocate for ending disease stigma, increasing early detection, expanding funding for research, and raising public awareness of memory loss.
We encourage readers to use our comment section to share your own insight, observations, and questions about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
