Help and Hope is a new educational program for people in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease or related dementia and their primary care-partners. This program focuses on families to provide support (both by peers and the facilitators) as well as key educational topics that will help strengthen family bonds as they face Alzheimer's disease. This program offers four modules (over a two-day program) covering important issues couples and families face as they travel the Alzheimer's journey together. Each module is delivered in a combination format of lecture, handouts, discussion and exercises. Some of the topics include the basics of diagnosis, communication strategies, legal and financial planning, treatment options and anti-stress therapies. Participation is free and registration is required.
