A PLACE TO START 

PROVIDING HOPE, HELP & GUIDANCE TO FAMILIES LIVING WITH DEMENTIA

In our experience, dementia is an ever-changing disease affecting you, your loved one and your family.  There are always new issues, situations and emotional support needs that arise.  We want to help take some of the stress of the unknown away! 

We will sit down with you & your family to listen, make a plan, and show you how you can live with this diagnosis and have some wonderful memories and moments with your loved ones! We offer mentorship, navigation, guidance, planning, support and understanding for coping with this often isolating disease.  We also offer monthly programming which includes luncheons, local musicians, guest speakers, 'Lunch & Learn' events, and much more!  

We will help you connect with others who understand and who are facing similar challenges. 

A Place to Start offers all assistance, guidance & programming at no cost to

the family!

A Place to Start is a way for our family to continue a passionate cause in honor of our dear mother, Connie, who passed away from Alzheimer’s disease in 2011. As a family who has journeyed down the uncertain path of dementia and Alzheimer’s, we hope to help and guide other families living with the disease.
