Early Stage Alzheimer’s Program - Long Island Alzheimer's and Dementia Center

Early Stage Alzheimer's Program

"Early stage” dementia refers to those who are in the beginning stages of memory loss. In this stage, your loved one may be able to continue with their regular daily activities and sustain regular conversations. Encouraging your loved one to participate in a day program is important for their well being and overall health.

AL’Z Club

ALZ Club is an innovative weekly session similar to one that you find at an adult education center. Each session is hosted in an environment that is accommodating, understanding, and engaging to the needs of those who are experiencing the early stage memory loss. It is designed to inspire your loved one to talk and connect with others in the group. The program is offered Monday - Saturday from 10am-2pm.

  • Types of Activities in ALZ Club

How an Early Stage Program Can Prevent Other Complications?

Seniors in early stage memory loss regularly face challenges that require additional attention and care. An early stage program can help prevent some 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.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with early state dementia, being involved with the Long Island Alzheimer’s and Dementia Center’s ALZ club program may prove to be beneficial for an individual diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregiver.
