With a diagnosis of early stage Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia, many people say that they want to remain active and connected with others with a similar experience in their community.
The Alzheimer’s Association Peer to Peer Outreach Program is a unique service that connects newly diagnosed individuals with others living with early stage Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. Through a series of confidential phone calls, Peer Outreach volunteers engage with newly diagnosed individuals in meaningful conversations to share their experience and perspectives living with the disease, provide emotional support and share information about Alzheimer’s Association programs and services.
If you have a diagnosis of early stage Alzheimer’s or a related dementia and would like to speak with a Peer Outreach Volunteer, please contact Vanessa Souza at 408.372.9976 or firstname.lastname@example.org. A pre-screening is required to participate in the Peer-to-Peer Outreach Program.
