We’ve got two new community events for 2017 added to the calendar. We’re partnering with the Boulder Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association to bring you an informative session on dementia and an 8-week support group for those newly diagnosed with early-stage Alzheimer’s as well as their family members and friends. View our events page for updates throughout the year.

Early-Stage Alzheimer’s Support Group
Meets Monday afternoons from Feb. 6 thru March 27, 2017 at the TRU PACE/Grief Services building located at 2593 Park Lane in Lafayette.
* NOTE: There is a brief screening process to ensure that the group is a good fit for everyone. If you are interested in attending the group and would like to schedule a screening interview please contact Heather Kanapackis at 303-813-1669 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Early-stage support groups are offered to individuals with early memory loss (who have been diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment, Early Stage Alzheimer’s or a related disorder) AND their family and friends.
The Early Stage Support Group is an 8-week series that meets on Monday afternoons from Feb. 6 through March 27 where the same individuals meet every week to discuss different topics such as disclosing a diagnosis, communication, changing relationships, future planning, and more! The support groups are a safe and supportive environment where peers can offer emotional support, connections, and advice.
This group operates in a dyad model where the same curriculum is followed but individuals with early stage dementia meet in one room and care partners meet in another room.
