How do I connect with other sufferers of dementia with early symptoms like myself? -Ginny P.

The best way to form safe connections with other people with dementia is through sponsored support groups.

Try contacting the Alzheimer’s Association to see if there is a peer support group in your area. The site Alzheimer’s Association web site also has a page that refers to the Yates Office of the Aging in Penn Yan.

The Dementia Alliance, which is an organization specifically for people living with dementia, might also be a good resource for you. The Dementia Alliance could possibly make referrals for you to support groups of local people with dementia, or provide a means for connecting with people virtually.
