Memory concerns can be frustrating and irritating, and people are often confused about what to do or where to turn for help. Alzheimer’s Los Angeles has long recognized that people who are dealing with memory concerns may feel frustrated, alone, and frightened. Through our Early Memory Loss Conference, we offer a day of support and education to anyone experiencing early memory loss, a diagnosis of Mild Cognitive Impairment, or early stage Alzheimer’s disease, their partners, or family members.
