Most of our programs and services at the Alzheimer's Support Network are open to the public, and do not require notice or reservations. We do however, have a few Special Programs which are restricted to appropriate attendees. 

 
Early Stage Group: This is an eight week intensive course for couples, where one spouse is in the early stage of the disease.

 
Naples Club:  (also known as: The Gentlemen's Club) meets every Friday at Terricana Grand. This group is for men in the early stages of dementia who wish to have save place to socialize.


Ladies Club: is for women in the early stages of dementia. Like the Naples Club, the Ladies club is designed for those who want to socialize, and provides a safe setting to do so. In addition, both the Ladies Club and Naples Club provide valuable respite time for caregivers.
