The Alzheimer's Association of Rochester and Finger Lakes Region will launch Early-Stage Peer-to-Peer Outreach Program.

The new program connects newly diagnosed individuals with others living in the early stage of the disease. Trained volunteers living with early-stage Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia will conduct confidential telephone calls to answer questions and offer a unique perspective that only someone living with the disease can provide.

The program was developed with funding from the MetLife Foundation.
