The Emory Alzheimer’s Disease Center believes that information is power for the people who have early Alzheimer’s disease or a related condition. This website is designed to provide you with basic information as you begin your journey with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). We want to increase your awareness of available resources that you can benefit from now and guide you to resources you may need in the future.
We know there is life and life abundant after a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. People learn to live with the disease and often tell us they “take one day at a time.” Almost everyone tells us they have many good days and they continue to enjoy the activities they have participated in throughout their life with family and friends. Many people can identify areas where they have grown as a result of this disease.
It is important now to “Plan for Your Future.” This allows you and your family some control over the future. There are discussions that need to take place and decisions that need to be made in the immediate future. The future will be much easier if you have done your homework.
